Specialties

Dr. Richard F Ambinder has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

highly recommended

Thoughtful, careful, compassionate. He took time with my wife, my daughter and I to explain what lymphoma really meant. He made a clear plan and followed up.

One of the best Doctors I know

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Ambinder in every way. He is patient and considerate. He is upfront and shows the love for his work and time. This Doctor I will never forget. If this was a field that i was studing to be in, I would love for him to teach me. Although my son is his patient I still try to learn everything for my family and I. Maybe one day I could even help others. Dr. Ambinder inspired me so that every now and then I go online and do some research on different things he has instructed for my son in his recovery. Thanks Dr. Ambinder for just being you and your most patient and considerable time efforts doing research and studies for anothers life long future. You will always have my vote for you #1.

not recommended for lymphoma diagnosis

This doctor was ready to order me the wrong chemotherapy for my NH Lymphoma diagnosis. If i did not do my research, I (and he) would have missed this potentially life altering mistake. I confronted him about it, and when he realized he was wrong you could see the embarrassment on his face. NH or H Ly mphoma can be a deadly disease if untreated or treated improperly. I strongly urge you to get a second opinion if you are going to see Dr. Ambinder.
