- 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.

I have been fighting cancer since 2001. I have done numerous treatments but the cancer then recurs. My case is considered advanced now and harder to treat. I began treatment in 2007 in the phase I trial center at MD Anderson. I have nothing but praise for Dr. Karp. He is a positive, upbeat, empathetic man who approaches your cancer fight with honesty and a large arsenal of treatments. Any side effects that I experience he treats. He answers all questions and is available to help me at any time. He is surrounded by an amazing team that I can email or call 24/7 since I live 2 hours away from Houston. I am in remission and enjoying a blessed life due to this wonderful doctor and his remarkable team at MD Anderson. Yes, we cancer patients have an uphill battle, but I believe Dr. Karp gives me the best possible chance to survive.
