Dr. Isaac Tafur 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.

Lung Cancer untreatable

Last August, Dr. Tafur, said since we cant do a biopsy he could not treat this cancer, it had grown twice in two months, he recommend HOSPICE and I would have 6 months. I was very ill until January. I declared that I would not die that I would live and proclaims God work. The pain had been easier and easier, I had stopped to take pain med so on Aug. I went to the see my regular Dr. Bailey, I asked if I could have an ex ray of my chest. After having the ex ray the Dr. told me your lungs are clear. Dr. Bailey, said this is a miracle, he cried, the nursed cried. I thought Dr. Tafur would like to know this.
