Dr. Jayne S Gurtler has the following 3 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.
- Hematology & Oncology
- 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. Gurtler is the best.
I first met Dr Gurtler in 1995.....no one wants an oncologist but if you need one this is the person to see. The only reason I gave 3 stars for promptness is that you may have to wait but if you need her for 3 hours that is what you get. I now see her yearly and I know I am still here because she not only provided medical treatment but the psychological strength to go through my cancer journey with a positive attitude. She is truly an Angel here on Earth and a staunch advocate for her patients.
