Specialties

Dr. Michael E Theodorakis 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.

Amazing!

This review comes about 33 years late. Doctor Theo was one of a team of many that treated me for Leukemia in 1980 at Upstate Medical University. I was 22 and 4 months pregnant. Long story short, the baby is now 33 with a child of his own and I love being "Granny Rosie" because of people like him who were there to help me along the way. He was a very caring and considerate doctor. I will always remember him and I appreciate everything he did for me many years ago. I would definitely have him for my doctor again. I know I would be in good hands.

Puts your mind at ease...

Dr. Theo really cares about his patients. He's very thorough with your care and always has your best interest at heart. At a young age I thought the last place I'd end up is a hematologist's office with a DVT but here I was. I'm glad I ended up with Dr. Theo as my physician and am grateful for the care I have received. I highly recommend him, and his office staff is wonderful!

a great heme/onc

As a physician myself, I select my doctors carefully. Although I've known Mike for 25 years, I only recently saw him as a patient. I found him warm, compassionate caring, and highly professional. The office staff is great, too. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
