- 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.

explained everything in detail that I could understand and gave me time to ask questions and process everything through the whole process. And didn't mind that my sister was there to help me. Wonderful Dr and staff.
Doctor was very rude, very rush, no knock on the door before enter. Rush through appointments. Very inpatient to address my concerns on surgical day. No clear instructions provided regarding the post-surgical care. I had to figure out how to care for myself when there was surgical string coming out of my wound (it wasn't supposed to show). The person in the bill department is extremely rude when they messed up my insurance verification. It's a nightmare.
