- 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 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 have been a patient of Dr. Acevedo's since 2009. I visited him the first time to meet him and just discuss my Multiple Myeloma. From the very first visit he was friendly, listened, and intelligently answered my questions. I have a great relationship with him and would not consider any change. Sometimes the patient has to listen to get to know the Dr. Just one of many stories : I had a friend who had a very aggressive cancer and he was searching for hope. He was not a patient of Dr.Acevedo's but Doc wrote a telephone number on a piece of paper and said" Tell him to call me after 6:00" It was his personal cell and it was so he could talk to him after his day ended. Now that is caring and compassion NOT financial gain like one of the reviews mentioned! Great Dr. ,Great person!
Dr.Acevedo is one of the nicest and smartest men I have met in this profession in a long time. He makes you feel like family. He takes the time YOU need to answer ALL your questions, put your mind at ease and makes you feel comfortable. His staff is fabulous and caring as well. Everyone always greets you with a warm and welcoming smile and hello!
