Specialties

Dr. Arun Bhandari has the following 5 specialties

  • Pain Medicine
  • Anesthesiology

    Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
    Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
    Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

  • 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.

Thank God I found him!

I wrote a review under Google that fully explains that I had started my treatment in Baltimore and would have given up if I had not been transferred and accepted by Dr. Bhanderi. The Dr. and his staff were sterling in the way they care for the patients. I adore them and I thank God they do what they do!

excellence

when I was diagnosed with breast cancer again after 9 years, I decided to change oncologists and Dr. Bhandari was recommended. Even though I live 2 hours away, I would not think of changing doctors. He is thorough, efficient, caring and highly proficient in his field. His chemo staff is one of the best, and make a scary experience comfortable. The entire office always has time for whatever my needs.

Very Good Doctor and Excellent Staff

The Staff is great. Dr. B is very knowledgeable and communicates with other members of the oncology team (nurses, radiation oncologists, pulmonologists, family docs, etc.) regarding treatment plans. My only complaint (if it is a complaint at all) is he could spend a little more time explaining things to those that do not have his medical training and expertise. Of course this review only pertains to my (our) interactions with Dr. B. Others, who have a completely different set of circumstances, may have had a different experience. He is very timely when it comes to hospital admittance, lab tests, MRI/CT/PET, etc. With cancer every day/week counts in its treatment so it is important not to delay tests and treatments (if at all possible).Overall, a very good experience! I would recommend him to anyone seeking an initial diagnosis, treatment, and follwo-up treatments. I don't think our experience warranted Clinical Trials but this is one area I don't know if this group is aggressive enough.
