Specialties

Dr. Mei Dong has the following 4 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

    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.

  • 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.

Knows Her Stuff

Explained the process of my treatment intelligently. Had an excellent grasp on my cancer diagnosis and communicated both the positives and negatives of my treatment. Was a positive influence and I left our initial meeting feeling I was in good hands.

Not worth the battle

Dr. Dong recommended a treatment based on a misinterpreted report and made no effort to speak to my 2 surgeons for clarification until I got really angry. Had I blindly accepted her diagnosis, my skin would not be amenable to finish plastic surgery, of which she was unaware that I had already started at our first meeting. When asked later for help scheduling a test by my GP's office, me - the patient and a coworker, she ignored all 3 of us for 2 weeks, until I threw a fit again. Never making an effort to speak directly to me, her patient, she issued a reply that had nothing to do with any of our requests for her assistance. Unless you are mentally and physically able to do battle to get the proper care and attention you need, I would not recommend this doctor to anyone.

One Star

Spent 10 minutes in 10 days with my ternminally ill mother. Then prescribed chemo and stood us up for the patient conference to discuss diagnosis and treatment. Deplorable. Never even offered an apology. Her lack of communication left my mom terrified. Shame on you Dr . Dong for your lack of compassion, humanity, professionalism, and common decency.
