Specialties

Dr. Gary P Frenette 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.

He was so assuring and helpful. While going through treatment he cheered me on every step of the way. I trusted his judgments! Truly was honored to have him as my oncologist. Hate he isn't practicing anymore.

Thank You

I saw several ENT doctors/surgeons who diagnosed me with cancer of the Larynx that wanted to remove my larynx - a long story. They never mentioned any other treatment options. In fact they both pretty much said I would be dead in a few years. I did seek out a second opinion from Dr. Gary Frenette and after a 3 month ordeal of Radiation and Chemo my PET scan came back CLEAN - and I still have my Larynx. Regardless get a second opinion, and Thank you Dr. Frenette !!!!!
