- Hematology and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.
- 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.

I first met Dr. Teston in 2005 for treatment for metastatic breast cancer. From our initial visit she has been very accessible and encouraged my involvement in treatment choices. My diagnosis we not a very hopeful one, however, it has now been 8 years and I am still going. I credit Dr. Teston's approach to treatment and our dialogues to this success. She transferred from one treatment center to another one a county away and I was more than willing to follow her there. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to play an active role in their own treatment.
Good news: Acts like she's listening, always cordial, does not rush office visit.Bad news: Tends to use good bedside manner to overcompensate for lack of knowledge, fond of saying, "I don't know", lazy in investigating patient's other possible health issues, refuses to give medical advice, has made unprofessional comments about another medical professional at a competing facility, has even violated HIPAA law. Overall rating of doctor-mediocre.
