Dr. Susan Delgalvis has the following 3 specialties
- Hematology and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.
- 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.
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.

Dr. Susan Delgalvis has inspired, encouraged, accepted and allowed me to do whatever was deemed necessary in the improvement of my health situation. I never would have done as well with any other physician as she's been more than excellent in maintaining my health and actually keeping me alive for the last six years. She's allowed me to explore any alternative options and has always allowed me my freedom to "be a free-spirit." Over all, she gave me back my life emotionally, mentally, and physically. She's an exceptional doctor and I'll always have a special place in my heart and a wonderful admiration and appreciation for her...and also Kye, my beastly friend, feels the same way as I do. Thank you for being the best, for being more than an excellent doctor and for always being there for me. Thank you for allowing me to have a choice in my exploration, and providing the best treatment for my current situation. Thank you for your support and for your assistance and thank you for allowing me fun, laughter and to some extent danger in my pursuits when improving and enjoying my health and life. Thank you for giving me over 100% quality. You're the best, always.
