- 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 was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2008 and was treated by another oncologist in my area. After seeing her as a patient for five years, she dropped me because I changed insurance. I was frightened and didn't know where to turn to for help. That is until I met Dr. Oyer and all my fear was allayed. He accepted me as a patient and since that day. I've had no worries. Dr. Oyer is an excellent physician and a caring doctor who has shown me that I can put all my fears and worries into his hands and know that he won't stop until he's able to find a way to help me. As director of the Ann B. Barshinger Cancer Center in Lancaster, he has provided the people in our area with a talented group of medical professionals and staff that give patients the best care that we so desperately needed. When my Mother was in need of a hematologist, I went to him and asked him to see her as a patient and he didn't hesitate to say yes. He told me he knew how important my Mom is to me and he would be happy to take her on as a patient. I'm so grateful to have Dr. Oyer as part of my medical team.
