Specialties

Dr. Michael B Wax has the following 3 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 & 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.

Disappointment in the medical profession.

I was extremely disappointed in Dr. Wax's flagrant lack of empathy and compassion when delivering some difficult info about the status of my illness which had progressed to a terminal level. He seemed more rushed and abrupt than ever before and barely acknowledged my husband whom he had never met . I chose Dr. Wax because he was described as clinically astute and kind by my primary care MD. There was no evidence of the latter during my recent visit. I left with many unanswered questions including whether I should find a different oncologist, not exactly what you want to deal with on top of everything else following news of a very poor prognosis
