Dr. May D Abdo-Matkiwsky 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.
- 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.

Outstanding...I am a registered nurse...I know good doctors and she is one!
Love this doctor and the office. I had a couple of scares since my cancer treatment, and every time, Dr May answered my cell phone messages within five minutes. It didn't matter if she was at home, or walking in a parking lot to the hospital or in the car. Every time she responded within minutes to my fears and questions. The nurses here are attentive and caring and it's a positive, upbeat place to be. The one drawback is that there are sometimes very long wait times, but that's never a problem if you're aware of it - I just bring my laptop or DS and play games or do work, knowing that it comes from the care they give each patient. Dr May is personally interested in every patient and their lives and when I asked, they even sponsored a "Hay Bale of Hope" at a breast cancer awareness event I was involved in at a local wildlife sanctuary. Just a great community of caring.
