Dr. Randall S Hughes has the following 3 specialties
- 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 & 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.

Dr. Hughes is caring for my mother, who has Stage IVa non-small cell lung cancer. He has been consistently warm and caring, and has made a difficult situation easier for our family. Appointments are pleasant, and Dr. Hughes never makes us feel hurried. He is more than a good oncologist--he is a fine person.
Dr. Hughes spent a great amount of time talking and explaining in detail every concern we had. My husband had advanced lung cancer when we found Dr. Hughes. He had chemo and a medication prescribed that turned him around for a time. He gave us hope with humor and grace. Months later, when my husband passed away at Zale Lipshy Dr. Hughes was there, sat and talked to our family for a while. He was very warm and helpful. I wonder who that other person was who wrote the other comment, but I was amazed. I am recommending today to a friend.
