Dr. Maqsood Amjad has the following 1 specialty
- 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.

I have been suffering from blood loss anemia for many years and feeling miserable all the time. Doctors have not been able to find the source of my blood loss. I saw Dr. Amjad few months ago, he listened to me patiently and came up with a plan to treat my anemia first and in a few weeks I started feeling better. Then he referred me to NY to help find the source of my bleeding from my small intestine. Here I am now, free of all that misery. Dr. Amjad is a great doctor, thorough, affable and knowledgeable,
I was feeling so devastated the day I was seeing Dr. Amjad for the first time for treatment of my breast cancer. He made me feel special and I left with a hope and vigor to fight my cancer. Here I am now, free of my cancer, I owe it to him. A great doctor, compassionate and with the best bed side manners.
I have been a patient of Dr. Amjad for a decade. I can't remember a visit when he was not thorough and personable. He takes time to listen to me always and then make his recommendations in a way that I understand fully. His compassionate personality and bed side manners are extra-ordinary. In 5 minutes, you can tell that he is the best in what he does. I will recommend him to any of my friends or family if they ever need an oncologist.
I was referred to Dr. Amjad for treatment of throat cancer. Dr. Amjad was unable to get a PET scan I needed authorized by my insurance company. Dr. Amjad claimed it was rejected on multiple occasions. My human resource representative was able to provide verification that Dr. Amjad was at fault for not responding to my insurance company request for additional information. It was recommended by my referring doctor that I receive both radiation and chemo. Dr. Amjad unilaterally decided to forgo chemo. After just a few months my cancer returned. I have since endured 4 surgeries and a complete laryngectomy. When I met with my surgeon to have the laryngectomy she told me that my records from Dr. Amjad indicated I had both radiation and chemo. Please choose another doctor for your treatment he incompetence has resulted in months of pain and suffering. My life will never be the same - had he followed the normal protocol of radiation and chemo, I may have still been cancer free today.
