Specialties

Dr. George W Sledge Jr 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.

Dr. Sledge daved my life, on more than one occasion. There have been times when I had a bit of a wait, but there have been other times when my situation was critical and I was the cause of the waiting of others. This man is brilliant. He is the most caring doctor ever.

Absolutely WONDERFUL!

Dr. Sledge is by far my favorite doctor. He's soooo smart yet can translate information to his patients so that they understand what the oncology world knows, what it doesn't "know" and what his opinion/recommendation is based on the known data. He's so sweet, spends a lot of time with you and makes you feel like you're important! I can't say enough about this man...I adore him.

support staff, nurse Vivian is rude! other patients told us to try to deal with anyone else but we couldn't figure out how to. Sure enough we had a lot of tense conversations with Nurse Vivian. Everyone walks on eggshells around her. most unpleasant experience our family had with a nurse.
