Specialties

Dr. Timothy E Byun has the following 4 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

    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.

  • 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.

Caring and Professional

Answered all questions, patient, and calming. I have much faith and confidence in him. Sad to see the angry comments about picky problems from picky patients. They work their butts off and couldn't care more. Nurse Gi, Dr Byun's assistant, has been so kind and caring.Everybody is scared and angry with cancer. I'm not one to take it out on a fine doctor and excellent nursing staff.

Four Stars

I have been going to Dr. Byun for over two years. I find him, intelligent, caring and all and all professional. When I first started with him it was not as good as it is now. His staff is better, every one is on the same page and I coud not be more satisfied.

Lack of Consideration

This doctor is certainly intellegent, but lacks the caring spirit necessary for this speciality. I was left waiting over and hour and a half for an appointment during my treatment. A cat scan was ordered without ordering the necessary bloodwork, resulting in me wasting an entire morning registering and waiting for the CAT scan, and then having to go back for lack of current bloodwork. Maybe after he sees another 1000 patients, he will develop some respect and compassion for them.

Avoid at all costs

This doctor *knew* that a breast tumor is of a type that spreads to other parts of the body, yet he did *not* order any tests to check other organs. His explanation was "lack of clinical symptoms", which in my opinion is nothing short of idiotic--by the time there are symptoms, it is too late. Testing would not have changed the fate of this specific patient, but would have dramatically altered what she did in her last days.
