- 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 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.

10 years ago I found out I had leukemia and my diagnosing doctor was in Denver while still lived in Fort Collins. I spoke with my general practitioner and was told go see Dr. Sorensen you will love him! 9 years ago he walked through that door introduced himself, put my file on computer desk and asked "How are you doing?" Of course I told him my side effects and what I was dealing with ect. He stopped me mid sentenced and said "No no I mean how are you doing with all this?" I knew right then he would be in life as my Dr. Putting aside everything and asking a patient how they are holding up is a test to an individual's character. Since then he's changed my life, worked with me to help me fight, and became a friend. I would tell anyone who has cancer or is dealing with cancer that having a Dr who cares about you makes the light at the end of the tunnel more radiant!!
This review is long overdue. I was diagnosed with red blood cell lukemia and Dr. Sorenson came in as an additional opinion. I was red my last rites and no one thought I would make it past the next day or 2, at which time he took over and stayed up sleepless nights going through everything with a fine tooth comb to find out what was wrong with me. He worked until he found out I was actually suffering from an inability to bring B12 into my system. Without it you cannot produce red,white blood cells and hemoglobin. This was a wonderful outcome and 6 months of daily shots to a year of bi weekly and now 5 years later every 1-2months. Excellent and caring, just the sweetest man and I thank God he was willing to go the extra mile and look for the simple things that were causing my problems.
