- 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.

I thought you care about your patients? You stopped my dad's chemo for almost 2 mos. he end up going to the hos. He had a unsuccessful surgery unfortunately.. This dr never came to check my dad not even for 5 mins. You may not be affiliated with the hos but what's 5 mins of your time .. and You called us to say take my dad to the hospice care , we know where we stand in terms of his condition but show some respect and care for your patients and the their families . And sad to say my dad passed later that day.
Doctor Parikh is a good doctor, his diagnosis is very accurate and he has extensive knowledge about the type of cancer that I have, on the other hand his staff at the front desk is horrible, I just got sick and tired of dealing with his office manager named Bonnie and her rude attitude, do not expect the telephone lines to be opened at 9.00 sharp, do not expect a good mood when you arrive, do not expect prompt communication with your preferred pharmacy, all you hear from her is "uh-huh" repeatedly that it gets annoying and exasperating to the point (like in my case), that you start considering looking for another physician with the credentials of doctor Parikh but with a more courteous office staff.
Dr. Parikh has a great reputation, obviously knows his stuff. But he is not forthcoming & has zero compassion. His staff, on the other hand, is marvelous, caring, supportive & just plain nice. If you just want someone to go by rote & do what has to be done, go to him. If you want emotion, compassion, caring - find someone else.
