Specialties

Dr. Hope S Rugo 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.

I am now a "survivor" and in that group. In five years with Dr Rugo as nominal oncologist, I saw her two times. The first time I waited over 2 hours. I took in very little of what she said because I was drowsy by the time she came into the exam room. "Nominal" also because in five years I saw 2 nurse practitioners, and after year one mostly nurses. These are wonderful people but how extensive is their knowledge? One was so blinded by her own experiences (non cancer) that she ignored my requests for help until it was almost too late to take any corrective action. Dr Rugo no doubt lives up to all the adjectives bestowed on her, but don't expect her to be your actual doctor.
