Specialties

Dr. Susan G Urba has the following 3 specialties

  • Hospice & Palliative Medicine
  • 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.

Follow up is weak.

The coordination of my dads cancer was unorganized which we believe cost any possibility of survival. We were told my dad was in remission from his cancer at the end of Nov. So, my mom and dad booked a trip to florida in Feb, he was taken off the plane by wheel chair. The hospital said he had bone cancer everywhere. When I asked Dr. Urba what happen, she said this cancer typically returns. I mentioned that you may want to tell families that, in the future. They presented that they got all the cancer and he was cancer free. Checking it wasn't a top priority for a high rate of cancer that returns.
