Specialties

Dr. Soumit K Basu 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.

  • Hematology

    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.

Quality of care not quantity.

I have ITP (Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura) and have been seeing Dr. Basu since 2011. I was seeing another doctor at a different facility for 3 months prior to seeing Dr. Basu. I went to Dr. Basu for a second opinion and learned more about ITP from him in my first visit than I learned from the doctor I had been seeing previously in the months I was a patient of the other doctor. I'm treated as a person, receive quality care, and informed of resources that would be helpful to me. It's all about the quality of care not the quantity.
