Specialties

Dr. Marshall Flam has the following 4 specialties

  • 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.
    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.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

office visit

My experience started off great, but rapidly went downhill when I didn`t agree with his procedure. He is extremely agressive in his treatment of chemo & chest x-rays. If you don`t agree with him, he brushes you off. Threw the biopsy report at me. I found my own second opinion that was totally different from Dr. Flam`s. Last visit was 3 hour wait & my concerns were not considered important. It`s his way or the highway. Good thing he is retiring.

Pleasant, Direct, Patient & Thorough

Dr. Flam is patient, courteous, respectful, detailed and informative. Most importantly, he put my Dad at ease with his demeanor and the confidence with which he gave us the diagnosis and our treatment options. He is pleasant yet direct. He has a no nonsense approach to delivering diagnostic information. He does not mince his words, yet he is not misleading. His staff members are very courteous, professional and considerate. With so many positive attributes to this medical practice and its staff, it is almost easy to overlook the extraordinarily long wait. Overall we believe that Dr. Flam is godsent to our family and for our Dad in particular. His staff members are quick and courteous in responding to our questions and requests for information and copies of records. His office runs quickly, efficiently and smoothly. We whole heartedly recommend Dr. Flam and his practice for your oncology needs. We have used his services in the past for another family member and we were extremely impressed with his cutting edge approach for her treatment that resulted in a possible outcome. We feel tremendously blessed to be accepted by Dr. Flam and his practice to help us through this new and challenging phase in our lives. We take this opportunity to thank Dr. Flam and his staff for their service and dedication.

One Star

My Mom was diagnosed with CA on a routine exam. The primary doc made this appt for her. At 445pm, on a Friday, the financial dept left a MSG on my phone letting me know that she didn't have a valid Medi Cal number, and if she didn't have a secondary insurance or 5000 up front, it was best that I cancel the appt. Her ID number had been transposed, so she did actually have both Medicare and MediCal. And actually, I did have a little nest egg for emergencies that would cover his " up front" money.I work in health care. And I do get that everyone should get paid for their services. But what if my Mom didn't have those resources available to her? Is this the person I would want to take care of her? Someone who's first response is how much money can you give me? My answer was emphatic. No.
