Specialties

Dr. Harlan Pinto 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.

Dr. Pinto is a miracle worker, to me

I went to Stanford after I had been diagnosed with a Stage IVB neck cancer. Prognosis not very good. Dr.Pinto was assigned as my medical (Chemo) oncologist. He was,and is, the single finest doctor I have encountered, before,during or after that traumatic time. He is incredibly intelligent but also warm, passionate about every aspect of your health (mental as well as physical) and is a very, very caring human being. I understand he spends much of his time at the VA, and all I can say, bless him for all that he does and the person that he is (and I'm not even religious). He was the mainstay in pulling me through times when I did not want to see another day. Yes, you have to wait a while to see him, but that is because he spends so much time with each patient under his care. Once you are in with him, you are the sole focus of his attention. Now, five years down the road and cancer-free, he still insists I come in for checks and talks, and he is just as warm and focussed as he was when the whole thing began. I cannot say enough good things about him.
