Specialties

Dr. Linda T Vahdat has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

Unprofessional

Linda Vahdat is quite the communicator. She told us all the terrible things that can happen to a cancer patient - where it can travel, how it can feel, the ways you can die and how fast (we hadn't asked for this) - and at the end of her litany, Linda Vahdat looked me in the eye and smilingly explained how I could not be cured. The place itself is like a wonky machine - they are willing to puncture and re-puncture an already exhausted patient, do the same tests again, and add some experiments to keep their grant money flowing. I was shocked - and scarred - by the machine-gun barrage of verbal abuse, pass-agg and scare tactics, and how the office, without warning, scheduled (unnecessary) re-tests without informing us. Not wishing to be in the hands of a tormentor, I searched for another oncologist. Reader, I found one - who has helped me to a full remission.

I have been seeing Dr. Vahdat and her medical team to take part in the T.M. trial Weil Cornell offered me. I am currently a stage IV breast cancer patient and intend on staying this way for a very, very long time! I believe the protocol I have been following through Dr. Vahdat has kept me stable. The staff, nurses and also the P.A. have all been wonderful to me each and every time I walk in trough the door (or, more accurately, through the elevator doors!) I would recommend this team to anyone looking for continuing, compassionate and cutting edge care.

Dr. Vahdat Changed My Life

I have been Dr. Vahdat's patient since 2000, when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. She counseled me on the pros and cons of chemotherapy (I was node negative), which I elected to undergo. She is highly knowledgeable and extraordinarily smart. Equally important, she carefully listens to her patient's issues and the challenges they face and then offers realistic solutions. Dr. Vahdat is kind and genuine. She changed my life and I am most fortunate to have found her.
