Specialties

Dr. Alessandro Papa has the following 3 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.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • 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.

Incredibly wonderful doctor

Dr. Papa is a very solid, wise, careful doctor who treats you like a human being. My husband had throat/neck cancer, and his chances of survival were very slim. Dr. Papa was one of the three doctors (ENT, radiation and Papa) we worked with, all providing fantastic care. My husband survived and is thriving. I highly recommend Dr. Papa.

Wonderful doctor and staff!

I can't say enough about Dr. Papa and his staff. He is attentive, empathetic, educated and really does go the extra mile to help people. He diagnosed me when nobody else could. I treat with him on a regular basis and I drive nearly an hour to see him. I wouldn't have it any other way and will never trade him for another doctor.

False Hope

My father was referred to Dr. Papa for bladder cancer after eleven months of treatment by an urologist. He ordered a ct-scan that revealed that the cancer had metastasized to the liver and bones. He reported this to my parents as "good news and bad news". My parents did not understand the full extent of this diagnosis. He subsequently did not return calls nor did he acknowledge the death of my father.
