Dr. Michael H Bar has the following 2 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.

Brains, but no compassion

I am sure this doctor is smart, but he showed no compassion for a long-time patient who died under his care. I was shocked by how he left this patient to die -- relegating his care, and important decisions about it, to be taken up by other hospital physicians who had little to no relationship with the patient. This patient had trusted Dr. Bar very much, and was abandoned by him at the most crucial time. I will never forget it, and I would not recommend this doctor to anyone. The patient in question was my father. Dr. Bar contributed to making his death an even more terrible ordeal than it would have been otherwise. I don't usually write reviews of this nature, but it has been three years and I am still angry and upset with Dr. Bar.
