Specialties

Dr. Steven P Kalter has the following 4 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

    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.

  • 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.

Life Saver

I first stated seeing Dr. Kalter in 2010. In 2012 my Insurace company wasn't able to allow me to see Dr. Kalter. I had so much Faith and confidence in Dr. Kalter that I didn't want to see anyone else. I dropped my insurance company and went with one that alloed me to continue to be a patient with Dr. Kalter. I have great RESPECT for him and there is not enough space here to accurately compliment him. GOD BLESS DR. KALTER

A doctor you can trust to give you the very best care anywhere.

Dr. Kalter has been treating my husband for 2 years. At first his cancer was "low grade", and he received appropriate chemo. Within a few weeks, his cancer had transformed into a very aggressive type. Dr. Kalter has been spot on in his treatment. He genuinely cares about his patients, is compassionate and reassuring and kind.

Five Stars

I have seen many doctors in my lifetime and Dr Kalter ranks right up there at the top. It seems to me that he genuinely cares about each one of his patients and he takes whatever time is needed to address the concerns of the patient and their loved ones. I am so thankful to the folks that directed me to him and made it possible for Dr K to be my oncologist. They know who they are and I appreciate them also.

Oncology Non Hodgkins Lymphoma Foll;iular

Dr Kalter has been treating me for s few years. I have Non Hodkins Lymphoma which he was watching for futher development. My cancer matastasized and he completely mised my diagnosis. I was diagnosed at the emergency room and went by ambulance to the hospital. Although I begged him to treat me, I was ignored. Finally, he started treatment with heavy chemo in the hospital. Treatment has now stopped until i regain my health. The doctor is very short with information and may have too many patients. I hope death is not in my near future but maybe there is nothing else to do.
