Dr. Ronald P Harris has the following 3 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.
- 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.
- Bone Marrow Transplant
- Blood Cancer
- Hodgkin's Lymphoma

Dr. Ronald Harris is an exceptional physician and oncologist. My mother was 72 years old when she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Sadly, she did not achieve remission following her chemotherapy and decided to pursue palliative care. Several months later when things were not looking good, she met Dr. Harris for the first time when we took her to the emergency room. She liked Dr. Harris immediately and he agreed to take her on as his patient. As a doctor who tries to cure patients, it must be difficult to treat a terminally ill patient when curative protocols are no longer an option, yet Dr. Harris was fantastic. He provided my mother with the care she needed to extend her quality of life for as long as possible. Somehow he managed to answer my mothers questions about what to expect in her final days with a smile on his face that was totally authentic, and he gave her honest information in a way that put her mind at ease. He was patient, upbeat, knowledgeable, informative, competent, caring, and charismatic - a perfect combination!
My sister has been diagnosed with mantle cell non-hodgkins lymphoma. Dr. Harris could not have been more kind, forthcoming or informative. I have worked in the medical profession for several years and have NEVER seen a doctor take the time Dr. Harris has taken to actually sit down in her room and answer all the questions we could think to ask. Not just the first day, but every day she was a patient. He is open to ideas, consultations and referrals. He kept us abreast of all upcoming tests and procedures, gave us the results of all tests asap and laid out a plan of action that the whole family could understand. I was particularly impressed that he was willing to take time to talk with me about my concerns in caring for her at home and wasn't afraid of my emotions about it. I most highly recommend him as a personal physician for anyone going through the trauma of cancer.
