- 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.

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.

She took phone calls in examination room while giving the diagnosis. Laughing with caller while we were just given horrible news. Didn't visit hospital, send a colleague. Wasn't available to review test results, left it to nurses and on call Dr. from practice. Missed important trends in test results.
Absolutely the best medical practitioner I have experienced in nearly 65 years of life. I have been treated by military doctors both foreign and domestic from birth so I have seen a wide range of skills and the lack there of. Dr Prillaman is the most knowledgeable, thoughtful, current, and prepared physician I have ever had. She comes into the appointment ready to get at you problem. She is considerate with a pleasing and frank professional manner. She lays out in simple and logical terms a scientific plan to move forward with the treatment. Her team of assistant Pam Freeman and the clinics Head Nurse Gloria West are simply the best. they are thorough and considerate of your needs from initial triage to post appointment follow up.This is my 10th year in Dr. Prillaman's care for Stage III Colorectal Cancer and with her skill and guidance and Gods grace I will give you another positive update in 2024.
First SHE is not a MALE! So you got that wrong. She has been my oncologist for 7 years and counting. Absolutely the best doctor I have had,ever (and that has been a pretty long time). A knowledgeable and caring medical professional who outlines clear and concise treatment based on sound medical knowledge and research. She has a great doctor patient manner and is encouraging while being factual and realistic about treatment and possible outcomes. I recommended her to anyone facing cancer treatment. Superb.
