Dr. Lynn H Ratner 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.

Dr. Lynn Ratner is a genius. He has decades of experience, taught many prominent oncologists, is flexible, cutting-edge and innovative in his thinking and methods, and is totally oriented to custom care for each patient. He pulled me through a terrifying time with brains and grace and humor and heart, and checks and checks and tailors your treatment to how the science looks this week, and then reconsiders if new info appears, always picking up the phone and conferring with other experts and exploring protocols. He knows how to speak to very frightened people, and believe me, this is big. His patients adore him - as I do. he is an extraordinary doctor, very, very smart, and gets results. Amazing.
