Specialties

Dr. Vijay K Kasturi 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.

Wonderful doctor

In hindsight, it's not surprising that FOUR office, nursing, and lab personnel made a point of confiding on my first visit, "Oh, Dr. Kasturi is so good!" (This happened at UMass's hema/onco center in Worcester, not the office in Leominster.) The obvious respect from his coworkers is well-deserved; Dr. Kasturi is a very knowledgeable, exceptionally personable doctor, and the modest waiting time was well worth my visit. He spent plenty of time with me, answering all of my questions and posing many of his own. His bedside manner is that of an educated, caring ally -- never the lofty, know-it-all doctor dictating to the umpteenth know-nothing patient-of-the-day. I wouldn't hesitate to put myself or a loved one in his care...and that's really the best recommendation, isn't it?
