Dr. Davood H Vafai has the following 3 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.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • 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.

Number One in my book!

I would recommend Dr. Vafai to anyone that has been diagnosed with cancer. As far as I’m concerned he saved my life after I was diagnosed with 3rd stage lymphoma. I have been in remission for over six years now and I owe it to Dr. Vafai! He is the best as far as I’m concerned.

I am extremely glad that my husband chose Dr Vafai to treat his 4th stage lung cancer. He tried every possible aproach of medicine that was available but always emphasized that the final decision about what aproach to take was up to us. He was warm, caring, extremely knowledgable but also up front about the cancer. We were able to stretch the prognosis from 10 months to almost 3 years. He gave us confidence and understanding and if I would ever need an Oncologist, I would want him to take care of me.
