Dr. Victor J Lanzotti has the following 4 specialties
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.
- 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.

He was the doctor for my Mother, who had pancreatic cancer that had spread to other organs by the time of diagnosis. He helped her fight the cancer, even though the odds were not good. He included her in the decisions of how long to use chemo, what types to use. He never gave up, and was willing to try strategies as long as she was. As a result, Mom lived 18 months after a diagnosis where less then 4% live one year. At one point, when her passing seemed imminent, he helped her live another seven months with a reasonable quality of life. She got to see another birthday and the Springtime flowers and birds, which was a goal of hers. There were things that didn't make him a perfect doctor, but his knowledge of the disease, how to treat it, and his willingness to fight it, no matter the odds, made him a great doctor for her.
Made an 80+ year old cancer patient wait outside for 15 minutes while she can see that there are people inside the office, with some "special" patients already coming out through the glass door. Waited in the waiting room for 30 minutes, another 1.5 hrs. in the examination room. Dr. Lanzotti came in, talked to us for about 2 minutes, he remembered that the patient had x-rays done, went out "to look at the results" we waited for 45 minutes, meanwhile we can hear him looking at another patient next door. Made the patient go back and forth to the office without new instructions, findings, on a weekly basis. Never prepared when doing scheduled consultations, didn't even review the case just before entering the exam room. Said "you have lot's more coverage, we can use that" maybe that's why the patient had to have x-rays and consultation every two weeks.
