- 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.
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.
- 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.

After waiting more than 2 1/4 hour wait and upon a request to the office, this person finally breezed in and made a cursory physical exam after examining hematological values. He asked about my treatment for pneumonia on 10-21-10. He may have spent 3-4 minutes and seemed to be in a hurry to finish. His manner was artifici-ally pleasant certainly not personal.
I originally had my appt with Dr. Vora, but Dr. Berman walked into the room, without greeting me, and told me Dr. Vora was not in that day and she was not accepting new patients. Although, the website stated she was accepting new patients and when I called to make the appt with her no one told me otherwise. He never apologized for the inconvenience. I left without receiving my exam and found a new doctor.
He was not professional did not share his information on MY medical condition with me. Was only concerend with running very expensive tests to peak his curiosity. When expressing concern for payment of tests (prior to performing them). Was told it would be covered under my copay. It wasn't. After paying a nearly $1000 for a blood test later discovered the results of these tests were never found. Only a notation that it was ran and his conclusion. No actual tests.
