Dr. Nabeel K Shalan 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 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.

I went to Dr Shalan for 4 years with breast cancer. Twice he sent me for radiation and it was not needed, according to the radiation oncologist. Every time I went there he argued with me that cancer did not hurt. I knew where the cancer had metasticised before I went in because it hurt. His receptionist is rude , unconcerned and inefficient. Most of the time when I called the phone was being answered by the service . They never called me back and if I needed something I had to go over to the office to get it. It took her two weeks just to file with my insurance co for an approval to start my radiation. She told me that everyone that came in there had cancer and that I was not anymore special than the rest of their patients. I changed doctors and my new doctor was told that they didn't know when they would have time to send my records over.
I came to this man on the advice of my co-workers due to having problems with the oncologist I was using. Not only did I make the right choice, this man saved my life. Not only did he sit down and discuss the options I truly needed, but he actually talks to you and listens, treating you as a human being and not just another dollar sign like my last oncologist. This man shows great consern and understanding and is a real asset for people, just like me, who really needs the support. I strongly recommend him and so does my family. Thank you Dr. Shalan.
