Dr. Maria I Juarez has the following 3 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.
- Hematology & Oncology
- 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.
- Deep Vein Thrombosis
- Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia
- Hepatitis C

Maria Juarez took my mother's care into her own hands as if she were her primary care physician. She and her staff did all the work, and follow ups, and tests, and, contacting other physicians, and even argued with the wrong-headed decisions of other so called "specialists" whose decisions she felt were wrong (and they were eventually proven to be wrong). She took as much time as was needed to explain to us my mother's problems and treatment options. She explained the pluses and minuses of every possible decision we could make. She challenged the decisions of some of my mother's other doctors, who neglected to follow up on their own tests. She is like an old fashioned doctor who really cares about her patients. If you are lucky enough to be sent to her, I would highly recommend that you see her. She went above and beyond with my mother's care. She even researched areas of my mother's care that had nothing to do with her specialty, that other "specialists" were responsible for and highly paid to see about. Only they didn't follow up with my mother's care, and Dr. Juarez did. The only negative I have to report is that the office waiting time was too long, but I can forgive that, knowing that she was giving other patients the same personalized level of care that my mom received. If you want the best care, see her, just plan on waiting longer than you would like to.
