Specialties

Dr. George A Sotos 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.

Thorough, smart, detail-oriented

I recently saw Dr. Sotos and he was very thorough and detail-oriented. He was good about ordering various tests and was reassuring as to my prognosis. I would recommend him to anyone.

Reasonable wait

There is a reason it takes about half an hour for me to actually be seen by Dr. Sotos when I have an appointment. Because of the nature of my problem, I have to have blood work done when I arrive and it takes (only) 20 minutes for the tests to be run. Then Dr. Sotos reviews the results before he enters the examination room. Seems pretty reasonable to me!

unprofessional

I lost faith in Dr. Sotos when he became annoyed with my questions about the side effects of my chemotherapy (possible permanent peripheral neuropathy). Despite symptoms that sent me to get a brain MRI to rule out brain cancer, he was dismissive of my concerns. Rather than answering my questions and calming my anxieties, he recommended that I simply stop treatment right then and there. I had only completed 5 of 12 treatments; given that I have stage iv colon cancer, they are my one defense against tumor recurrence. I have researched my condition enough to know that there are many alternatives to simply stopping treatment. He did not explore any of these alternatives with me and was quite urgent in recommending that I simply stop treatment. I left his office feeling confused and not sure what to do. This is not how patients should be treated. I am looking for another oncologist.
