- 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.

Although we haven't been able to come up with a diagnosis, Dr. Lund has been very vigilant and compassionate with my care. He has left no stone unturned and even referred me to the Mayo Clinic. He listens to my concerns and works along side me to come up with a plan of action. I appreciate his down to earth approach and trust his expertise. A very gifted doctor who sets his ego aside.
I am so greatful to my surgeon for referring me to Dr. Lund. He was kind enough to see me at the end of the day and even though his office staff had left for the day, he offered to write up my report so that I would have it for my appointment with the radiation oncologist. Everyone in the office was kind, caring and reassuring. I would certainly recommend him to others facing this difficult situation. I left his office feeling like we had a plan and very hopeful.
