Specialties

Dr. Richard J Bleicher has the following 2 specialties

  • Surgery
  • Surgical Oncology

    Surgical oncologists play various roles in treating cancer. They can perform biopsies to determine if a tumor is cancerous or not. If it is, they’re trained to remove the tumor, tissue, and in some cases, all or part of an organ or bodily structure where the cancer has spread. In addition to removing cancer, they can perform any reconstructive surgeries that may be necessary.
    Many surgical oncologists specialize in certain types of cancer, such as liver, lung or breast. Don’t be afraid to ask them what they have the most experience treating. When looking for a doctor, it’s important to know that general surgeons are also qualified to perform many of the same surgeries. However, surgical oncologists have specific training in recognizing and treating cancer, which some patients prefer.

One Star

He performed a partial mastectomy and a reexcision and failed to even come close to removing my primary site of cancer. This was discovered during my preradiation mammogram. When questioned about it he recommended a biopsy and then blamed me for having gotten other opinions prior. I ended up needed a complete mastectomy which my new surgeon did without any further tests as she was confident the tumor was still there ( which it was). Stay away from him!!

I feel very grateful to Dr. Bleicher. He was the third opinion I sought after an abnormal mammogram in 2008. He was the only doctor of the three who dug deeper and discovered that I had invasive cancer in my breast. He was kind and considerate. I am coming up on my five year survival date and I thank him for his care and dedicated work.
