Dr. Daniel A Laheru has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
- 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.

Intense attention to my rare form of pancreatic cancer.For almost 6 years Dan has directed my care in a thoughtful ,concerned manner,Focus and communicates to vital facts in an understandable and efficient manner is very signicaficnt.I am still doing well under Dan's exquisite care
If you or a loved one is struggling with the demon that is pancreatic cancer, then you want the very best doctor supervising your care. After a bad experience, we requested Dr Laheru after soliciting recommendations from the Johns Hopkins discussion board. We hoped and prayed that he would say "yes." We feel so lucky as we see now what a difference it makes to have a responsive, caring, and skilled physician directing my Mom's care. We sleep more peacefully at night. He continues to amaza and impress.
Dr. Laheru is simply one of the best doctors you can have for the treatment of pancreatic cancer. My mother was diagnosed with Stage IV PC and initially went to an oncologist near her home. The treatments were horrible and she was close to giving up due to the severe side effects. We were worried that she wouldn't continue with the chemo. Somehow and with luck we found Dr. Laheru and it is like night and day. She has very little side effects from the chemo combo that he has her on aside from the usual weakness shortly after treatment. We thank God for everything Dr. Laheru has been able to do for her and her nurse, Ella-Mae is also a Godsend. She's so compassionate, upbeat and energetic. We highly recommend Dr. Laheru and his dedicated staff. They are true professionals!
I went to Dr. Laheru because I had read that he is one of the top PC doctors in the U.S. I agree.I have stage 4 PC- a very aggressive cancer that has a survival rate of 1%. I've been alive over 3 years thanks in large part to Dr. Laheru's advice and willingness to be aggressive. My local oncologist seems to feel there's little hope for me. But Dr. Laheru is always offering new suggestions of chemo, trials, surgical procedures, etc. He has been wonderful with my husband and children too. Always takes his time, listens to us and gets back to us quickly when we have questions. I couldn't be happier!
