SPECIAL INTERESTS:
Dr. Siddiqui is board certified in Internal Medicine, Hematology and Medical Oncology. As a hematologist/oncologist, Dr. Siddiqui treats many different types of cancers including but not limited to skin cancers (melanoma), Breast cancer, Lung cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, Lymphoma, Head and Neck cancer, Prostate, bladder, kidney, and uterine cancers. Dr. Siddiqui also treats benign and malignant Hematological diseases.

Dr. Siddiqui is confident that in the years ahead, cancer therapies will continue to improve. “Even though we have come a long way, there is still much to be done. We have many great treatments for early stage cancers, but we are still not talking about cures in advanced or stage IV cancers. However, it’s a very exciting time to be practicing in this field because its changing every day.”

Dr. Siddiqui is a big believer in communication and enjoys keeping a white board in his exam room so he can diagram things for patients to help them better understand their disease and treatment. “The patients find it very helpful because the visuals help them grasp the information more readily. I think the more patients know about their disease and what to expect, the better for everyone involved.”
