- 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.
- Hematology & Oncology
- Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukemia

In 2004 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and Dr. Li was willing to meet me immediately after receiving the news. He spent a lot of time with me making the plan for my treatment and is so kind and compassionate. He is the most knowledgeable and caring doctor I have ever known. I am alive today because of Dr. Li.
Dr. Li is one of the most caring, considerate docotrs Ihave encountered in a very long time. He met with me the samje day I was diagnosed with Breast caner so I would not spend the entire week-end worrying and wondering what was next. He explained every detail to me and told me to call if I had any more questions during the week-end. I am now approaching my five yr mark and I thank God every day for such a quick discovery and all the wonderful caring doctors that were there for me!
Doctor Zhiyong Li is an outstanding doctor that I have ever met. His patients are always the first priority to him. He takes care of every patient as if you are a family member. He spends time to explants in details and answers all of our questions. A very intelligent doctor and easy to talk to as a patient.
