Dr. Guiying Hu 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.

Showing 3 of 3
Was quick to diagnose and explained cancer well. Did not respond to important questions we as a family had for making decisions on a slow growing stage 4 cancer. Then wanted to quickly start chemo treatment without allowing us to process information to make a good decision. Was visibly bothered once we mentioned getting a second opinion on treatment plan. I'd be weary of a doctor who's quick to treat without answering basic questions on prognosis.
This doctor did not listen, did not answer questions completely and had not read the information in my medical record completely before starting an examination. She did not include me in decisions about my care, but since she did not provide me with adequate information to make decisions, I guess she could not. I consider my visit with her a disaster.
