Dr. Dushyant Verma 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.
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- 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.

My husband was diagnosed with Chronic Myeloid leukemia last October. He was only 25 when diagnosed and it really came as a surprise and blindsided us. Dr. Verma and his staff have gone above and beyond for my husband. Been extremely accommodating, pro-active, and professional. My husband trusted Dr. Verma from the first time he visited him at the hospital- Dr. Verma explained his condition very well, he was honest but made us feel very comfortable and positive. Dr. Verma is very professional and might seem a little stern or serious but he is very caring for his patients and goes the extra mile for them. When he walked out of the hospital room after giving my husband the initial "you have leukemia, this is the next few steps and we need to start chemo" talk, my husband said he really liked him and was glad he would be his doctor. His nurse practitioner was also amazing! If she didn't have the answer for us, she would figure it out and follow up with us. All the nurses and office staff in this practice and at Cox Oncology floor took amazing care of us and as weird as it sounds, made this experience much more enjoyable and beautiful than I imagined it would be. My husband has medicine through a specialty pharmacy and Dr. Verma's office would have it sent there so that my husband could just pick it up at his appointments. Which was SOOOO nice! We didn't know how spoiled we were until we moved and realized that not all Dr's offices do that. Now if my husband forgets to call in in time, or there is a storm or holiday, it could delay him being able to get his leukemia medicine, where we never had to worry about him getting it at Dr. Verma's office. Since my husband's cancer has to be treated long term, we asked to also be referred to a CML specialist at MD Anderson. Dr Verma and his staff did all of the work for us, got us in with the absolute best CML Dr at MDA. It really made my husband feel very taken care and valued. Unfortunately, because of recent job changes, we had to move out of state and stop seeing Dr. Verma, but we miss him and his office a lot, and really couldn't thank them enough for all they have done for us. Also, when we got to MD Anderson the specialist we saw definitely praised Dr. Verma (after looking through my husband's CML history) and told us multiple times that Dr. Verma had made really great calls, picked the best TKI medication for my husband, and had done everything that he (the specialist) would have done himself. The specialist said that he normally sees his out of state patients twice a year for the first few years, but since Dr. Verma was doing such a great job, we only needed to come to Houston once a year if we liked. Sorry if it seems like I'm rambling, but I know it is so important to feel like you trust the Dr and staff when dealing with anything, but especially cancer, and I would recommend Dr. Verma his staff and Cox Oncology to everyone.
