A medical oncologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis, treatment, and care of patients who have cancer of any tissue or organ. He provides treatment of cancer using systematic therapies- like chemotherapy, targeted therapy, hormone therapy, immunotherapy- and biological agents. A medical oncologist usually works in conjunction with other multi-disciplinary cancer specialists, for instance, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists or interventional radiologists, to give the best treatment outcomes. Your medical oncologist takes care of your chemotherapy, hormone therapy, and immunotherapy.
Medical Oncologists are the specialist that you are going to visit most often and for the longest period of time in the duration of your cancer treatment. This is because your oncologist is the specialist who will modulate your general care and coordinate your course of treatment with other specialists as well.
