Specialties

Dr. James L Khatcheressian 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 Khatcheressian is a wonderful doctor. I have stage four esophageal cancer and he has been treating me for 2.5 years. His goal for me was to extend my life with a good quality of life. He has accomplished that. I have not had chemo for over one year and feel really well.

Highly recommend

I will always be grateful for Dr. K, he was my mother's hematologist and then oncologist when he found a mass that other doctors didn't find for over a year. Dr. K is the most caring doctor I've ever dealt with. He never gave up on treating my mother, always looking for something else to try. He will always have a special place in my heart and I will never forget him. God definitely gave him the gift of what a doctor should be!

Dr "K" is a very caring person (human being), he understands human frailty/ fears and that when we come to him we are afraid and overwhelmed. He doesn't treat you like you are on an assembly line and that you are there to be rushed along so that he can get on to the next patient. I like that he is warm and caring. He talks to you and asks questions, and makes me feel my questions are always valid.

Wonderful doctor

I was skeptical about seeing dr. Khatcheressian, because I thought my oncologist at UVA just couldn't be beat. When Dr.K as I find it easier to call him came in, he put me at ease, was very knowledgeable about my type of cancer, explained things to me in a way that I could completely understand. When I explained my problem with my former doctor, he seemed like he truly cared, and agreed to take my case. I turned seeing several doctors into one with Dr.K and finally I'm getting treated like a person, not some type of pain junkie. I would highly recommend seeing him if nothing else just a consult, you would be surprised what a wonderful man this Dr. truly is.
