Dr. Stephen R Veach 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.

We were able to see Dr. Veach for a second opinion after my husband's diagnostic thanks to a family doctor's introduction and recommendation. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Veach, he is what old school doctors are (full medical examination every time he sees my husband, poised, soft spoken, caring, doesn't rush, extremely careful of making sure you understand everything he is saying, that he answers all your questions and that you understood the answers) and extremely knowledgeable of all new treatments around the world. He is an excellent doctor, a true professional and teacher. Dr Veach has made this horrible experience with cancer a lot easier to deal with ! His office follows his lead, everybody that we have been in contact with has been great.
