Specialties

Dr. Dean F Bajorin 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.

The worst experience - ever.

My husband had Stage 4 bladder cancer and lived for only 10 months. My biggest regret is we spent 4 months with Dr Bajorin. We knew he was terminal so I don't blame him for the outcome, but I did expect to be treated with some respect and kindness. You will not find that here. He should not be allowed around patients.

The Worst Doctor I Have Encountered

Similar to some of the previous reviews, Dr. Bajorin was dismissive, rude, uncaring, and reckless. His recommendation was to skip adjuvant chemotherapy, and just monitor for cancer growth via periodic CT scans. He failed to mention that studies have shown that a certain chemotherapy regime has been shown to have far superior results when compared to observation. Ultimately, other doctors at MSK weighed in and advocated for chemotherapy. Thanks to those other doctors, this patient is currently 9 months cancer-free. Overall, the experience with Dr. Bajorin was terrible both in terms of medical skill and bed-side manner. Please do yourself a favor and select one of the many other talented doctors at MSK. As a side note, Dr. Bajorin's office is also disorganized to the point of recklessness (lost test result, charts, etc.). If his office is so reckless when it comes to administration, one wonders how reckless he is in the provision of medical care.

Rude and analytically weak

I went to Sloan to see my brother, who has been battling bladder cancer. Dr. Bajorian came in on rounds. I had questions and started asking this guy very pointed questions. He was rude and dismissive and tried to put forward a flawed analytical construct. This guy is an arrogant jerk who will use double talk to try to overwhelm the uninformed. Some reviewers assumed his bad bedside manner was offset by better qualities as a researcher. Not so. He would flunk Bayesian probability, which is at the very core of clinical trials.

Uncaring Attitude toward Patients and Research Oriented Only

Dr. Bajorin saw us very briefly. He was abrupt with usalmost to the point of rudeness. He lookedannoyed when asked a question, and leftthe room after just a few minutes.He recommended no chemo and a follow-upCAT scan after a few months. My husbandwith 4th stage bladder cancer immediatelysought out another wiser, caring doctor,and was able to survive for over two moreyears with a good quality of lifewhile on weekly chemo therapy. Dr. Bajorin's main interest appeared to be in research, and I guess he had placed my husband to be left untreated, and put into his "control group."
