Specialties

Dr. Lajos L Pusztai has the following 2 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

One of the Best

Dr. Pusztai is an extremely bright, kind, thorough doctor who spent almost an hour with me today, patiently mapping out all my options to fight Stage 4 Breast cancer. I was so impressed by his knowledge of the latest research as well as his patience when it came to answering all my questions. I left the office with several new options, an organized plan for the next few months to come and perhaps most importantly, a thing called hope.

worst experience with a physician possible.

Two trips to Houston seeking help with stage 4 breast cancer. We provided all previous scans and documents requested by Md Anderson. On first visit the doctor failed to have scans scheduled. We took the blood tests and had to reschedule to return several weeks later. Dr. Pusztai has the weakest voice and you struggle to hear anything he says. He told us on the second visit that the blood tests could not be found and that Md Anderson radiologists can not read scans from any other facility. All he could tell us was that we had cancer. He obviously had not read anything about my wife or her history. He told us just to continue whatever our local oncologist recommended. Our local oncologist was prescribing a new medication he wasn't sure of and that is why were were at MD Anderson. We could not get another scan to check the new drug for three months and the drug was not working. I lost my wife far sooner than I should have due to the complete neglect of this man. His only interest which he made clear was to get to Yale for a new position there. He never contactted our local oncologist even after request. As a side note - He was more than two hours and 40 minutes late for our appointment. I'm sure he had a great lunch that day. Celebrating I'm sure. There are way too many injustices in this world. This man is a great example.

Dr. Pustzai was very thorough .The wait may have be been a little longer but it is to be expected at this type of visit since he has to review labs. etc before talking with the patient. I feel very fortunate to have had him as my physician.
