Specialties

Dr. Vera Malkovska has the following 2 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.

  • 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.

Five Stars

Dr. Malkovska is the best. She is patient and straight forward and spends time answering all my questions. I am always nervous and somewhat anxious when I visit her for the fear of the unknown, but she calmly put my fears at rest. She explains everything to me and my husband because I think that I only hear some of what she is saying. She is highly qualified in the field and has the experience to answer any questions that I may have. I would highly reccommend her to any Hemo/Onc patient.

Amazing doctor who is required by hospital administrators to carry a far too heavy case load. However, she helped save my life so as a doctor she is amazing!Her staff is awful and arrogant and in need of training about relating to the patients, their customers! I figure this poor staff work is a reflection of poor hospital morale and lack of leadership within the Hospital administrators office!

My Angel in a White Coat

Dr. Malkovska is an exceptional doctor. She made me feel like a VIP no matter what the issue.My family loves her beside manner as well. Our Angel by saving my life not once but twice while treating my slow & aggressive lymphoma.She is direct and overprotective because that is what needed in my case.We look forward to seeing her because she and her staff is part of our family.We need more medical professional that genuinely care about their patients not the fame with being an educated,professional and personal doctor like Vera Malkovksa, MD at Washington Hospital Center, DC.
