Specialties

Dr. Antony J Charles has the following 4 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

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • 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.

One Star

It's very sad that I ended up with this doctor at UT Hospital after Dr Miller left. Dr Charles needs to speak better English it's so hard to understand him it's important to be able to under your Doctor to get to best treatment. Dr Anthony Charles was told by another doctor not to give me any more chemo due to radiation burn for 2 weeks and he talked me in to taking chemo 4 days later and I got worse. His words were this chemo is mild and I will be fine. I ended up very sick for 3 month and could not get the treatment I needed. Once I got better I tried the chemo he recommend and had a bad reaction and 2 weeks later the cancer grew in to my bones. Got more radiation and was told no more chemo. Next office visit with Dr Charles he was trying to push more chemo on me after I told him I suppose to wait for the radiation to ware off and all he would say is that this treatment is mild. Yea I heard that before so he set it up and I cancel the treatment the next day. Then I changed doctor so glad I did now I am getting the right treatment I need. I was told later on by a doctor that Dr Charles is the type of Dr that will follow you to your grave with a bag chemo. I could never say anything bad about his staff or all the nurses at the cancer unit. They always gave me great service and was so nice.
