Dr. Yaqoob Ali 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.
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 and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.
- 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.

Dr. Ali is far and away the best Doctory I have ever encountered in my life. I was diagnosed with Cancer at 28 years old and sent to see him. He is a personable and caring doctor who has a positive attitude, but he is also a straight shooter. Most people who look for the "happiness" answer me be a little taken aback by him, but thats what people need, the truth! He is also like a tough parent which can be crucial to your survival. He beat around NO bush when he told me he was displeased with me for missing a chemotherapy treatment, and to my benefit, I never missed another. You can't talk about him without talking about his staff. They are the best group of young women I have ever been around in my life. Their compassion during the most vulnerable and terrifying time in my life made the journey that much easier. I would NEVER hesitate to go see this man and his staff again. Cream of the crop!
Had two appts with him. Waited well over after each appt scheduled. Office personel loud enough to hear in the hallway each time. Other patients complaining as well. Fight broke out in hallway between staff members. Patient came out of room and told them to stop it. Dr Ali complained about other St Johns Dr's, calling them unprofessional. Wanted me to come back to see him, but when i did, he had no clue as to why i was there. Did NOT read my chart prior to my visit, then wanted to waste my appt time reading it outloud. Told him twice i already knew what it said and no need to read it to me. Refused to answer specific questions i had related to my care. VERY unprofessional, rude and uncaring. Disappointment to St Johns reputation and a step down to their overall performance. I dismissed him as my Dr, then shortly after, received a letter from him, stating he was dismissing me, accusing me of things that were just down right a lie, to save his own skin. Would NOT recommend him to anyone wanting good quality care.
Doctor Ali is Fantastic. My father is in a nursing in Dixon Mo. I live in Salina Kansas. After my Fathers visit with the Doctor Ali, The Doctor called me in kansas to explain step by step what was going on with my Father. He answerd all my questions even though it was quiting time at his office.I Doctor who cares Wow!!!
Dr. Ali is professional, compassionate, and eager to answer questions and provide information and encouragement to me. Despite a busy practice, Dr. Ali gives me the time necessary for a complete evaluation of my condition or progress. He uses the most current technology and treatments and considers my opinions and preferences when planning my care and makes me feel that we are indeed working together for a common goal. We are fortunate to have Dr. Ali in our community.
