Specialties

Dr. David J Vaughn 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.

Well, it has been about 18 years - -

but I think it's a good idea to share - - my husband was treated by Dr. Vaughn 18 years ago for testicular cancer. We were so scared and the chemo regimen was daunting, but...as we think of Dr. Vaughn in our prayers daily, we made it through thanks to this Dr.'s incredible skills and caring.

patient for 12+ years

Dr Vaughn is our savior and professional God. He has been so for my husband since we first were lucky enough to be referred to him by the Urology Dept at U of Penna Hospital after he was diagnosed with prostate cancer and had radioactive seeding. It was Dr Vaughn who, after a number of years, detected bladder cancer and suggested treatment. We travel fromFlorida to PA to visit Dr Vaughn every year, and we value his opinion as no other.

Dr Vaughn is one of the best doctors ever

Besides being a regional expert in testicular cancer, this man is an excellent Doctor. He never rushes a patient and always takes the time to answer ALL of my questions. He is patient, kind, knowledgeable--truly an amazing physician.
