Dr. Lala A Cornelius has the following 4 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.
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- 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.

This woman was educated in Russia where she was born. She cleverly does not use her given name in order to appear to be an American.She does not have the years of experience as reflected in her bio and has moved about the country from hospital to hospital.She also claims a different area of expertise each time she moves. I found her to be self-absorbed, a poor listener and ,as she was behind schedule, I was rushed through my appointment. She seemed very preoccupied and seemed not to understand my terror regarding my symptoms. I left her office in tears of frustration. Find another physician as this one in questionable from every perspective.
This was a nightmare encounter for me. I did my homework. She does Not have 18 years of practice, English is most certainly not the only language she speaks as she is from Russia,This is so evident that I found communication was very difficult. , I did not appreciate efforts to hide her heritage. She is a very cold woman with a problem with her listening skills or maybe this is a result of her Russian roots. I was given an inaccurate diagnosis simply due to her not ordering proper tests for my symptoms.Over and over I reported the very symptoms only to be ignored. Time wasted with this woman came at a very dear price.My projected outcome has been seriously reduced by an uncaring woman who has not been honest with her experience. I will sue as soon as my health permits.
I accompanied my loved one to his initial appointment with Dr. C. for consultation about a chronic anemia/iron deficiency problem. She spent over 30 minutes taking history, reviewing labs and establishing rapport. Dr. C. outlined a tx. plan, explaining her rationale. I am hopeful that the planned follow up will be accomplished.
I was diagnosed with CML in 2009. When I saw Dr. Cornelious the first time I really liked her. Excellent bedside manner. However, all that changed with my second visit. I found her knowledge about CML very limited. She told me Gleevac was and has been used for 25 years. Anyone who has experienced this medicine knows it was developed in 1996. Also, people didn't start using Gleevac routinely until 2000. Then she told me that Fatigue was NOT a side effect of Gleevac. I knew it was but didn't want to challenge her. I went home and looked it up again - low and behold FATIUGE IS A SIDE EFFECT of Gleevac!! If she doesn't know these simple facts - what other important facts is she going to miss in the future? looks like it is time for me to find a new oncologist.
