Specialties

Dr. Sujatha Murali 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.

Outstanding physician

Dr. Murali spent over 90 minutes with me going over everything I needed to know about my breast cancer. She is very caring and compassionate and more than anything gave me hope that I was going to get through this. Just loved her.

Very Caring Doctor

After reading previous reviews I was very cautious about taking my sister to see Dr. Murali, who is taking over care of Dr. Gina D'amato, whom we loved. My sister has been battling GIST for the past 3 years and her local oncologist felt it was time to follow up with Emory Hospital again as it seemed her medicine had quit working. I almost cancelled the appt. but after seeing Dr. Murali, I am glad we didn't. Even though my sister is Stage IV very advanced metastatic GIST, she was very optimistic and hugged my sister and told her she hoped she would be seeing her for a long time to come. I am very sorry other's have have had bad experiences because I know how emotions play a very large impact on a patient's recovery. I hope others have a positive experience like we did.

Unprofessional! Definitely needs some lessons in bedside manner

We took my mother aged 60 who was diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer to Dr. Murali for a second opinion. I was firstly disappointed to hear that she had not read all of the reports even after I was assured that she received all of her reports beforehand. She admitted not having read the most important Tissue test report. She then proceeded to come very close to my mum to tell her she had no options and to basically just curl up and wait for death. It was the most unprofessional scene I had ever witnessed. We had specific questions about the diagnosis which went unanswered while Dr. Murali acted like a psychotherapist rather than an Oncologist. While we were all aware of how dire the circumstances were, the purpose of a second opinion is not to assume the role of the primary physician by talking about the prognosis but rather to focus on treatment options and alternatives and to answer questions. Her primary oncoologist on the other hand told us about the poor prognosis earlier but he never said to give up and he treated the situation in an honest yet positive manner.I would recommend that you stay away from this specialist unless you need your relatives to be told that they should give up, do nothing and wait for death. I still feel guilty about taking my positive, strong-willed, determined mother to Dr. Murali.
