Specialties

Dr. Harry P Erba 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.

overall experience

excellent! Dr. Erba was very patient, kind, and caring. He spent the time I needed to understand my condition. He was able to calm my nerves as I went back to my home town 6 hours away. He even gave me written instructions for my home doctors and ER to follow and his contact number if I returned there with complications. He was candid but kind and he let me choose the option I wanted.

Four Stars

My husband was a patient of Dr. Erba's and we were happy with him. However when my husband became seriously ill and our family Dr. told us after several tests "This is related to your leukemia. You must see your specialist at U of M" the office staff deemed that he could not see Dr. Erba until his annual check-up with him. Consequently my husband was hospitalized locally and passed away.
