    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.

Caring Doctor

I have been seeing Dr. Desai for my lung cancer and she is so caring whenever I see her. She is a compassionate doctor. She will listen to your concerns and explain each step she is taking to help fight your disease. I would recommend Dr Desai to anyone fighting this or any ugly cancer. Thank you Dr. Desai, you are my hope and strength.

She is a relatively good doctor but she doesn't follow up as she states she will. Impossible to get a call back...my primary and I left several messages regarding an important issue she stated she was calling the radiologist to follow up. No word, no response...I switched doctors...my health is too important!
