Specialties

Dr. Ann S Lacasce 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.

Four Stars

My family was referred to Dr. Lacasce for a second opinion for a family member. She was highly recommended and we knew people that received terrific care from her in the past. She knows her field of oncology, B-cell Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. She was quite thorough in her review of the material and was able to provide information that was central to diagnosis and treatment. The patient felt like Dr. LaCasce was dismissive and that the staging of NHL was not critical enough for her expertise.

love dr. lacasce!

Since beign diagnosed with Non-hodgkins lymphoma almost 10 years ago I have had many different ocologists. Although they have all been very nice, Dr. Anne Lacasceif by far my favorite. She not only is amazing in her knowledge about the most recent findings in her field but also in her bedside manner. Her warm smile always makes me feel I am visiting a friend when I go to Dana Faber.Thank you for being so naturally nice Dr.Lacasce.GPC
