Dr. Deborah C Schrag 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.

Totally agree with other reviewer. This doctor really listens and has incredible empathy and compassion for her patients. The clinic may make you wait because she spends a lot of time with her patients but the wait is worth it because she really treats you like an individual......very important when the diagnosis is the big C.
It was a little hard to get an appointment but once I got past the office staff this doctor was definitely worth waiting for. Very very compassionate in a difficult situation. Made me feel very hopeful. Very smart. Connected me to other great specialists and took care of things right away. very efficient.
