Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

Worst doctor I had ever experienced in my life! I have been to this practice for colonoscopies multiple times over the years. My doctor had retired, so I was seen by Dr. Hriesik for my latest colonoscopy. First of all, she has no bedside manner what so ever. Then she over-medicated me, I was given just under 3 times the amount of versed that I had ever received in the past. I was out cold and it took several hours for me to come to enough to be sent home. While I was out cold, I was moved into an empty office and left sitting upright in a chair. The nurse was very concerned and looked in on me often, however Dr. Hriesik showed little, to no, regard. My family member was appalled by the doctor's attitude, and the misinformation she gave directly after my procedure. She reported, "No polyps, no sign of cancer" and then said, "I take that back, I removed a rather large polyp". How does one immediately after preforming a procedure forget what was just done in that procedure!? I was in pain and extremely bloated for over a week after the procedure, something I had never experienced in my five previous procedures with a different doctor!
Cold, detached, spent all visit on computer. Kneel, drop your pants and hang on. Didnt explain that table was going to lower for better view. Will not return for followup and advised primary care to refrain from recommending this practice. Office staff not particularily friendly. No one in that office smiled!
I was brought in the office she said hello and then asked a lot of questions the whole time typing on her computer with her back to me. Stuck her finger up my rectum and said yes you have a prolapse. Told her I was in server pain and she tells me this can not be the cause of your pain. Sets me up for testing and wants to see me in 4 weeks. I told the staff I need to see her as soon as possible after test. She barely looked or talked to me. Then when we found out I did have a prolapse and this can not be causing your terrible pain but she said I had to get off pain meds and go see my Gyn. Told me to eat more fiber and when I asked more questions she got angry with me. I will never see her again, rude, insensitive and absolutely no personal skills what so ever. Don't go to this doctor bad bad bad
