- Hematology and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.

Dr Hargis has been my cancer doctor since 2004 and has taken care of me through multiple kinds of cancer. He is a very kind and compassionate man and takes time to treat the whole person. My medical background is pretty colorful, many complications with chemo and surgeries, allergic reactions, other health conditons and such, and he's successfully treated me through them all. I have been blessed to have him as my oncologist.

I feel that he needs to know this. He doesn't take time and I feel like after I waited so long each time I shouldn't have to see the NP instead of him or the PA. He should care enough about me to at least see me or reschedule the visit. I have to leave my job and drive all the way down town which is a 30 minute drive each way. I am put out so he could at least care. another thing I have never had any follow up x-rays. I could be eat up with cancer after breast cancer and he has not scheduled one body scan or cat scan to see if I am OK. I asked about this and he said unless I am having a problem they don't do these. Whatever! I am starting to look for another physician after all this time.
