Specialties

Dr. Philippe Armand has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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

    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.

  • Acute Myeloid Leukemia

The Best!

I am an older patient of Dr. Armand. When undergoing treatment, I had several setbacks and was admitted to the Brigham on several occasions. Throughout my treatment, Dr. Armand was always most caring and concerned, not only about my cancer, but about family situation. He was always willing to talk to my sons. He does go above and behond when caring for his patients. As an example,on one occasion, I had a spell while at the clinic. It was decided that I should be admitted to the Brigham. An ambulance was called, and to my surprise, Dr. Armand came in the ambulance with me to the Brigham and into the Emergency Room to make sure that he could aprise them of my condition. He is, without a doubt, the best! I am so very grateful that he is my doctor.

Best Oncology Doctor Ever

I actually left Beth Israel (neighboring hospital) because the oncologist there was very rude to my non-native English speaking mother (who happens to have a Chemical Engineering Degree, but my previous oncologist thought she might be dumb as a brick just because she can't speak English very well). Nonetheless, I felt that I could no longer trust or respect her (previous oncology Dr.) after seeing how she communicated with the person who cares most about me.So, I moved to Dana Farber and was assigned to Dr. Armand. What an inspiring man! He is so sweet, knowledgeable, curteous, and attentive. I think having an attentive Dr. is very important especially when you are dealing with illnesses as serious as cancer. You want to feel that your doctor CARES about you and you are not just another "body" passing through his office. I have just finished my Bachelors of Science degree and am going to get a PharmD. Why am I telling you this? Because Dr. Armand took the interest to learn a little about my life story and to encourage me to do well in school. That's such a nice personal touch to a lifelong doctor-patient relationship.I extremely highly recommend Dr. Armand to anyone who wants a caring, knowledgeable doctor on their "kicking cancer in the bum - Team".Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor at age 21, female, now age 26, caucasian/asian, ABVD treatment
