Dr. Albert L Van Amburg III has the following 2 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • 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.

We Needed to Know Other Options

My husband was Dr. Van Amburg's patient when he had prostate cancer. I attended every appointment with my husband. First visit he insinuated that nothing could be done. We should of changed doctors right away. He did not suggest going to the hospital in Dallas until it was too late. He did not think about problems that occur when a person has cancer. For example- My husband said his legs began to ache when he walked. Having treated many people with cancer it seems Dr. Van Amburg would have thought about the possibly of blood clots and given my husband preventative medicine. When we wanted some help with swelling as a result of the clots, I asked,"Do you want to see my husband's legs?" He responded, "Do you want to see mine?" He prescribed a strong chemotherapy and then sent my husband home. I asked and had read that it might be good for the patient to stay in the hospital over night because of the chemo's strength. Next morning I had to rush him to the hospital because he was so weak. I was not even told that they were going to stop his medications because he had reached the Medicare CAP. I would not recommend Dr Van Amburg. Doctoring has become too routine for him and he does have much feeling for his patients nor does he suggest other ideas and alternatives when he doesn't have hope.
