Dr. Michael Clarke has the following 3 specialties
- Radiation Oncology
A radiation oncologist is a physician who specializes in the use of nuclear medicine in diagnosing and treating cancer in a patient.
These doctors work in concert with other cancer specialists in order to determine the best form of treatment for a specific patient. Radiation oncologists are in charge of determining the correct dose of radiation to be used in treatments like radiotherapy and chemotherapy, as well as the appropriate amount of time that radiation should be administered in order to maximize the therapeutic benefits.
- 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.
- Colorectal Cancer

I have nothing but good memories of Dr. Clarke. He took excellent care of me during my cancer treatments and followup visits. I recall, one time after a chemo treatment, I just didn't feel like eating for like about a week or so, I knew that if I did that I would just be bringing it back up anyway. My mother was upset since I wasn't eating and she called Dr. Clarke at home. He gave us his home number if we had any concerns or questions. I just feel he went above and beyond. Any way, My mother told him about my eating habits or lack there of, and he spoke with me about it, I gave the phone back to my mother and he told her I would eat when I was ready. That was not good enough for my mother, I love her dearly but she just kept at me. I told her I would get sick. So to please her I had a bowl of Cheerios. That way when it came back up it wouldn't tear up my throat. Sure enough a run to the bathroom was required. I had a dept of gratitude for Dr. Clarke. I really feel he has a passion for what he is doing as a job and for other people. If you just needed to talk he would be there. He helped me through what I feel was the most difficult time in my life and I will never forget him. Thanks for everything.
