Specialties

Dr. Robert R Shreck has the following 3 specialties

  • 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.

  • 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.

Dr Shreck CARES period!

Dr Shreck shows total devotion to getting the best care for me. He takes all the time we both need to understand my situation and answer questions. He is enthusiastic and light-hearted to keep the mood up as well.He is especially good at cutting through the red-tape often associated with cancer treatment given the number of doctors involved. He personally picks up the phone and coordinates with multiple doctors to make sure my treatment is timely and organized. Thank you Dr. Shreck for caring and taking the time.

One Star

He is one minded and his opinion is all that counts. Very narrow minded and has very little feeling for his patients.Does not allow you any option but his decision. Makes snap decisions that are followed through without reguard to the patients thoughts or feelings.

I have seen Dr Shreck for 16 years. He treated me for Hodgkins Disease WHILE I was pregnant! It was the worst time of my life and although it was his first experience with a pregnant patient he handled it very well. We all came out of it just fine. My daughter was 6wks early and 4lbs 8oz but it fine health and now she is almost 16 and I am here to enjoy all of it! Thanks Dr Shreck!
