Dr. Sven De Vos has the following 2 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.

Dr. de Vos is an amazing doctor. I met with eight different doctors before I finally found him and I am so thankful that I persevered. He is extremely knowledgable and immersed in the current clinical trials. He is also kind and compassionate. He listens, he pays attention, and he follows up. He has seen me through two different lymphoma diagnoses over the past three years (both in remission) and I am incredibly grateful for his care. Every patient should be so lucky as to have Dr. de Vos in their corner. He is exceptional.
