Specialties

Dr. Alvin K Schergen 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.

Five Stars

Went to initial appointment with a diagnosis of lung cancer. Really dreaded the treatment and felt I wouldnt be around long. He and his staff put me at ease, got me an appointment for my first treatments and made me feel as if they really cared. Five years later I am looking at my last appointment because I am cured, I will probably come back in a year for a follow up and just to say hello to Dr Schergen and his staff. Cannot praise them enough to make totally bearable an unthinkable period in my life! .
