Specialties

Dr. Michael Preodor has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • Hospice and Palliative Medicine

    Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
    Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.

I have known Dr Preodor for over 15 years, and know him to be one of the most caring, creative, brilliant,problem solving doctors I have ever worked with. He brought changes to my meds that dramatically improved my life, and he continues to do so to this day. His ability to solve the heart of the problem is unparalleled, and his wit, integrity and kindness make him one of the very best docs I have met - anywhere. I feel very blessed to have been referred to him. .

He pays attention to al the needs of hte situation, and used both his knowledge of medicine and of hte situaiton to recommend a reasonable approach to the issue. A gentleman, a scholar, and a superb doctor!!

Horrible MD, avoid!

Dr. Preodor greets you with a big toothy smile, store bought haircut and shiny gold watch. He is truly one of the worst MDs I have had the displeasure of working with. He immediately dismissed my intervention ideas because he didn't believe in them (even though they are backed by evidence based research (TENS unit, look it up on google buddy)). He did a great job of confusing and irritating my family member undergoing a difficult procedure, and he was poorly prepared for the consultations with my family member on all occasions. He never addressed the pain medication regimen although he said he would, and I swear to God he has early onset dementia. If you have Dr. Preodor on consult, refuse his services at all costs. The janitor at the hospital would probably be more effective than this MD.
