Dr. Thomas D Fisher has the following 3 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 & 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.
- Bone Marrow Transplant
- Hodgkin's Lymphoma

In 2004 Dr. Fisher after 2 rounds of Chemo, that I didn't respond to, told me that there was nothing else that could be done for me and sent me home from the hospital and put me on Hospice care and said I had 2 to 4 weeks to live. A good friend who is also a doctor in San Antonio found another doctor for me to go to for a second opinion. This new doctor put me back in the hospital where I under went 3 more rounds of more intense Chemo which I responded to and then I received a stem cell transplant. I am not only alive and well today, I am cured from my cancer. If I had listened to Dr. Fisher and not gone for the second opinion I would not be here today.
Dr. Fisher is an amazing oncologist! I feel like he's absolutely the best doctor around, and better yet, he's located so close to where I live. Several of his other patients have also commented to me that they think he's an incredible doctor. He takes the time to explain everything in detail, and he is very patient in answering all of my questions. He also seems to be highly respected by his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Fisher!
