Dr. Thomas F Gregory has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
- 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.

I would highly recommend Dr. Gregory. After my previous Dr ignored my low blood counts and kept giving me treatments I ended up with blood counts so low that I was hospitalized for 6 days. Dr Gregory saw me in the hospital and I was highly impressed with his manner and expertise. After being released I requested a change of doctors and luckily he accepted me as a patient...he has worked with me to get my blood counts back to normal and keeps a close watch on my numbers. I feel very secure with him as my doctor. He may not be prompt, that just means that he spends the time needed with each patient to provide the best care possible....he never makes me feel rushed and takes time to answer any questions I may have. I certainly do not mind waiting to see him, in my opinion this man saved my life and continues to provide quality care for me. If you want a doctor to hold you hand and coddle you then you need another doctor, however his knowledge of cancer and treatment and attention to detail totally makes up for it.
He is not punctual. He comes in with no knowledge of why you are there. Then makes claims of being cancer free, that he can't possibly know, because he did not look far enough into the chart to realize that no ct scan has been done to confirm that there is metastisis. He is not personable. He stared at his computer screen with his back to me most of the time. He did not know much about my diagnosis or history. He asked me what treatment should be done. Then proceeded to ask what my urologist thought should be done. It was not reassuring. I'm normally pretty laid back with my doctors because I trust their knowledge and intentions. He made me feel on edge from the minute he walked in. I could not trust him. I was just more $ in his bank account. It didn't matter to him one way or another if I live or die. He has continued to try and bill me personally(not my insurance company) for everything he can think of, since I told his nurse I would not be back. I'm still trying to sort it out. Ridiculous.
