Dr. Anne M Favret 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.
- Breast Cancer

Dr. Favret is kind and informative. Dealing with her Alexandria office staff is more challenging than the cancer itself. I've recently moved from the area and needed ongoing care until I established a doc in my new town. I've called no less than 6 times to have an Rx filled and nothing. no call back, nothing. It's not like I can stop taking the meds. Very frustrated.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Favret's understanding of my diagnosis. She gave clear recommendations--wrote it out and handed it to me. She listened carefully to my experiences leading up to my surgery and my first visit to see her. She answered all of my questions. She has been extremely responsive on email when I had a quick question. I've had a very good experience.
When you are diagnosed with breast cancer you go into a numbing haze. Your mind stops working and all you want is someone to give you good solid advice and follow through. This is Dr. Favret. At our first appointment, she reviewed my charts and the surgeons findings. She then took a magic marker and started writing the information down the paper sheet that goes over the examination table. She wrote the diagnosis, her recommendations and the prognosis. She ripped the paper off the table and handed it to me and I still have it today, 6 years later. I was able to review that information periodically during the treatment stage and it was very helpful and comforting. Dr. Favret is a no nonsense physician, she is there to treat you, not hold your hand and I liked her style.
