Specialties

Dr. Saundra S Buys 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.

Dr. Buys is the best. She is really concerned about me and my situation. She always comes in and gives me a hug and she truly cares about my welfare. She also called me at 8:30 on a Friday night to talk to me about test results and to make sure I understood them. I was totally shocked that she was still working that late. She has called me several times to talk to me instead of having the nurses do it. I think that is great. I am so grateful she is my oncologist. I absolutely love her!

Dr. Buys is awesome. She takes the time to review my chart before seeing me. She remembers my name and pertinent trivia about me. She spends alot of time discussing lab results, treatment options, and prognosis. She doesn't get put out when I ask the same question again and again, hoping each time to get a different answer! Dr. Buys is brilliant, caring, and professional. She called me at 9:30 pm on Friday night to tell me she was calling in a prescription and to tell me about its side effects, to make sure I was okay with them before proceeding. She rocks!
