Dr. Alan D Gilman has the following 2 specialties
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.
- Hematology and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.ttcqeayetrwczwezdueawsrsbdyr

Self-verified patient of Dr. Alan D Gilman - Posted on March 25th, 2012
Al Strauss was diagnosed with Lung Cancer in the summer of 2004 by Our lady of ressurection. He had had cancer twice before, and was not a good candidate for treatment, they said. Our primary care Dr. sent us to "The very best Dr. he knew." Dad was treated and did beat the cancer. He ultimately did pass away from other issues. But he lived many more days because of Dr. Gillman. And he lived them well.
