Dr. Manish K Gupta has the following 3 specialties
- Emergency Medicine
An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.
- 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.

- Colon Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Metastatic Breast Cancer
- Prostate Cancer (Prostatic Neoplasm)

Oncology is not a fun business and I was lucky that from the start I knew that my cancer was one I would beat and move on from to have a full life. Dr. Gupta was always helpful and caring but never let me forget that as pain the rear these things were going to be, I was one of the lucky ones. Years out of treatment, he is still my go-to on any questions I have so I know I continue to the right things. When things first started, I wasn't sure if I liked Jennifer or not. She can come off a little harsh at first. But let's face it, again, oncology is not fun and it is probably WAY too much to expect someone to get a job like hers done AND handle every word and action with the extreme sensitivity to the raw emotions of folks going through the scariness of cancer treatment. During treatment and after, I am so thankful for Jennifer. She returns your calls promptly and she finds solutions. She is always polite but it is very obvious she is busy but never too busy to take care of the important things. She has been with Dr. Gupta so long that she has even handled things that she detected as possible oversights. Don't believe some of the reviews, Jennifer will be your strongest ally. All, and I mean all, of the other folks in the office at the Texas Oncology office at the Baylor medical offices in Plano, have ALWAYS been awesome to me and to my family. If you find yourself in the scary position of needing an oncologist office, I highly recommend Dr. Gupta and his caring, attentive staff.
Doctor Gupta is a very knowledgeable medical oncologist. He stays up to date on treatments and includes the patient in the decision process. His nurse, Jennifer is very nice and responsive. She has helped arrange additional care with other providers when necessary and helped me manage the side affects of treatment. I am currently seeing him in his Plano office.
My husband was a patient of Dr. Gupta. The whole experience at his office was beyond nightmare. His and his nurse's mistakes sent my husband back to the hospital twice before started treatments. His nurse, Jennifer, had the worse personality to be an Oncology Nurse. She managed to yell at the patient over the phone for her and her boss's mistakes. I am going to be honest here. If I have her full name, I would have reported her to the State Board of Nursing by now. Patients, please watch out for her. Needless to say, my husband is not his patient anymore. This review is to warn all patients to be more of your own advocate if you decide to get treated by him.
Dr. Gupta appears to have taken on way too many patients and takes a lot of time off from work. He's a nice enough man but I would not recommend him for an oncologist. If admitted to the hospital, he will not be your dr. while in the hospital but rather have the hospital MD treat you. Coordination of care is non existent. My experience was that he was more reactive than proactive. His nurse was impossible to work with.
Dr. Gupta is affiliated (can practice and admit patients) with the following hospital(s).
