Specialties

Dr. Kent M Adler 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.

Outstanding

I've been seeing Kent Adler since 2002 for treatment for a rare form of stomach cancer. He's been great. Let me list a few highlights. 1. Accurate diagnosis. People may take this for granted, but, it is critical and too often wrong. The cancer I had was rare. I read a lot of stories on online forums about doctors who missed this not-so-easy diagnosis and put their patients through pointless and painful treatments. 2. Cooperative. Again, don't take this for granted. Those same doctors who miss diagnosis also get an a huff when the patient questions the doctor or wants a second opinion. Or the patient gets advice about conflicting treatments. They take it as an attack on their capability. Not so with Kent. He was fine even happy for me to see an out of town expert and facilitate my treatment. 3. On the timeliness issue, I like to make the first appointment of the morning or afternoon. Alternatively, I call ahead to find out whether he is running on time.
