- 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.
- 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.

She's more than just a doctor. To tell the real truth, she has been; Most comforting as a doctor, and Iv'e seen MANY Dr.s before her. Easy to talk to about problems that are hard to talk about. She explains things so you can understand. She answers all questions with detail & truth. She offers options. She totally goes all the way & out of her way (more than just her job) to help you. When I leave an appointment, I actually feel good inside, and my mind is at ease. She has given me a quality of life more than I have hoped for. Her expert knowledge has actually given me life, and I thank God I,ve been connected with her. She is an angel that I think God has sent to help people. THANK YOU Dr. Callander !!
In 1989, at the age of 20, Dr. Callander diagnosed my disease, acute myelogenous leukemia. She treated me in San Diego at the UCSD Medical Center. I was so scared, but she was always at my bedside when I needed her. It's been 21 years since then--I've been in remission. I am now married, have two beautiful kids and a career as both a high school teacher and college instructor I can say without hesitation that she truly cared about me. She treated not just the disease, but me as a person. I just love her!
