Specialties

Dr. Ann Wierman has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

Get a Second Opinion

I concur with all of the previous reviews about Dr. Wierman's lack of basic adequate communication with patients/families and complete staff incompetence. My father was a patient of hers with stage 4 colon cancer and he is now near death because of complications from her treatment. It was nearly impossible to schedule appts. or even contact anyone in her office, she did not personally respond to any inquiries I made about my fathers care, and when he was able to see her she was always running extremely late and never spent more than 5 minutes with him. She also never answered questions directly and would not explain her reasoning for ordering new tests/treatments. Even when I would ask her specific questions about my fathers care she would give a curt sarcastic answer or completely evade it. I personally found her communication skills to be completely lacking. I wish now that we would have gotten a second opinion about his care and chosen a different oncologist.

Compassion Beyond Compare

Dr.Wierman is the most compassionate and caring doctor that I have ever met in my entire life. You are NEVER a number to her nor a time on a appointment book. She listens, she cares and she is without a doubt the very best in her profession. I have referred everyone that needed a Cancer or Hemotologist Specialist to her. There should be more people in the world like her and certainly more doctors like her.
