Dr. Mirfat A Bird 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.
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.

Dr. Bird treated my 48 yr old mother 7 years ago. She had stage 4 Breast cancer. She lived in the area, but my brothers and I did not. So of course we wanted to move our mom to the city in which we lived so we could better care for her. When the time came for Dr. Bird to give us a referral so my mom could be treated at another facility she became upset and would yell each time we requested the referral. We tried everything to get her to send the referral so our mother could start treatments here. The doctors office called to request the referral as well, but she in turn told them let her daughter give her the referral. She was unprofessional at every turn. I can’t believe she is still allowed to practice in Camden. If you can go to another specialist because she does not have the patients best interest in mind. She is a bitter and hateful woman and I pray to God that no one else has to go through anything like we experienced. My mother has since passed away, but I do believe if she was under the care of another physician her life would have been prolonged. Everything happens for a reason. I hope this review helps someone.
Dr Bird diagnosis for my 86 yr oldAlean Hamilton) mother was bone marrow cancer this cancer does not run in our family we was not given an option to get a second opinion. Dr Bird rush to start chemo treatment before her children could fly in from Ca and Tx. Before the treatments twice per week per dr bird, my mom was walking, driving, cooking, gardening and taking care of my 87 yr old farther. Now she is weak and drained due to the chemo twice a week we stopped the treatments and she is now in a nursing home. I am very upset when I asked dr bird to explain what was going on with my mother she got loud upset and walked away from us. I am afraid for my mother and would like a second opinion and another Dr.
