Specialties

Dr. Clifford Pemberton has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine

    Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
    Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.

Wonderful doctor!

Dr. Pemberton is the best! Humble, smart, incredibly kind, compassionate, and down to earth, he is the kind of doctor to whom you can literally entrust your life. He is patient, calm, and reassuring in a matter of fact, direct way. He will stay and answer every question that you think is silly or irrelevant. The best gauge of a doctor is to talk to the staff with whom he works. They love him, too. He was so efficient in ordering the correct tests to make my diagnosis and offer the most current treatment, that I am on my way to a healthy new me. Thank yoy, Dr. Pemberton, I owe you my life.

I have been seeing Dr. Pemberton now for over 10 years and can't say enough good things about him. As a cancer survivor, I have follow-up visits every 6 months. Of course, I experience anxiety at the prospect of each visit, but Dr. Pemberton has always done everything in his power to alleviate my fears. He is calm, positive, and very reassuring, while being honest and responsive to my cares and concerns. I never feel rushed, and I have complete faith that the treatments he has prescribed for me over the years are the best possible ways to deal with my illness. As an oncologist and hemotologist, Dr. Pemberton is among the best. Obviously, I highly recommend him to anybody who is seeking treatment by a top-rate physician.
