Dr. Rizwan Danish has the following 4 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.
A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.
- 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.

Truly a great doctor. Always ensures me and my family get all the questions we have answered. He makes me feel like he really cares about my future and wants to better me. I have been seeing him for 4 and a half months now. All of his staff have been more than great to me. I would reccomend him to anyone.
This doctor has consistently made both of my parents who both had terminal cancer wait more than two hours for every appointment. When he finally comes into the room and I ask him why we waited two hours he chuckles. In that environment of course you make lots of new acquaintances who are also under treatment and everyone has expressed that this doctor has no regard for anyone's time but his own and make people consistently wait for hours on end without reason. Unfortunately both of my parents were in a position where they had no choice but continue to see Dr. Danish. Otherwise I would have made a change after the first one or two experiences. This is unacceptable for terminally ill patients when every moment of their life counts. The last thing they should be doing is sitting in a doctors waiting room watching the clock tick away. When he finally entered the office he spent a totally of 7 minutes with my father. When I asked the Doctor to call me to discuss he did and then proceeded to yell at me telling me that if I don't like it to never to step foot in his office again. He had the gall to tell me that my Father wasn't complaining about the wait whereby I had to explain to him that my 80 year old stoic father wouldn't complain because he believed that the Doctor was probably handling people who were sicker than him. What is sicker than terminal? This Doctor has not ethics, cant run an office and is dismissive, rude and arrogant. He apparently has been doing this way too long and doesn't care about the patients but only about packing as many in his office in a day as he can fit without regard to their time or their care. Finally, when talking to my Father about my recently deceased Mother he couldn't remember that she was even his patient and kept mispronouncing her name and had no idea she had died from her cancer while under his care.
