Medical oncologists

Cardiovascular consultation is the most important aspect of medical treatment. It is an opportunity for patients to discuss about their cardiac problems, current complaints, understand the risks and complications, and to adopt healthy lifestyle habits.


Medical oncologists are doctors who focus on the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Their job is to take care of cancer patients and to use chemotherapy, hormone therapy, targeted therapy, or immunotherapy.

A medical oncologist will work with other doctors to create a treatment plan for you. They will explain your cancer diagnosis to you and help you manage your cancer symptoms and treatment side effects.

Why do you need to see them?

After you’ve received a cancer diagnosis, you’ll likely meet with a medical oncologist as one of the first steps of your cancer journey. They can help explain your diagnosis and treatment timeline, as well as answer any questions you may have.
In addition, a medical oncologist will work with other doctors to create the best possible treatment plan for you based on your individual case. This may include managing your cancer symptoms and side effects from treatments.

What do they do?

Medical oncologists specialize in treating and managing cancer using nonsurgical methods. These include chemotherapy, biological therapy, hormone therapy, and targeted therapy. Medical oncologists coordinate cancer treatment plans and closely monitor their patients for side effects.

Physician consultation is a good opportunity and you should be prepared for it.

  • Carry all necessary medical records for the discussion. It helps in better understanding your heart condition and avoids repetition of diagnostic tests.
  • Make sure you discuss your past medical history, surgical history, family history, and medications that you are taking.
  • Discuss about your lifestyle habits, dietary habits and also about your profession. Your lifestyle and nature of job may be associated with the risk for cardiac diseases.
