General Summary

Dr. Anil Singh (pronounced like Sing) is a board certified hematologist and oncologist. He graduated university at Trinity University in San Antonio and then worked at Southwest Research in San Antonio for 2 years before deciding to pursue a career in medicine.

He went to medical school at Ross Medical School in Dominica, before doing his medical school rotations in New York City. He was then trained in Internal Medicine in Buffalo NY. He ultimately pursued his Fellowship in Hematology and Oncology at Roswell Park Cancer Center, the nation’s first comprehensive Cancer Center dedicated to cancer treatment and research.

Dr. Singh is a medical Oncologist, treating cancer with chemotherapy, targeted therapies (oral chemotherapies) and immunotherapy. This runs the gamut of stages for cancer, including early stage, where treatments are designed to help reduce the risk of cancer recurring, to more advanced stages, when the cancer has already spread to other organs. As a medical oncologist, Dr. Singh coordinates the care of your cancer between surgeons, radiation oncologists and your primary care physician.

Dr. Singh is also trained in Hematology, the study of blood disorders, which can include cancers of the blood, like Leukemia, Lymphoma and Multiple Myeloma; but also, non-cancerous conditions such as Iron deficiency.

What is your personal philosophy around patient care?

For patients who have a treatable curable cancer, my goal is to guide you through your necessary treatments with the most efficacy and least toxicity possible. Hopefully thereafter we can just watch you, to ensure your cancer does not ever recur. For patients who have an incurable cancer, my job is to do everything to make whatever time you have left the best quantity AND quality possible. We work as a team to make sure we balance the needs of treating your cancer, and maximizing your quality of life. We always work with other medical professionals (your primary care, other specialists, and palliative care) because we know how complicated your care can be at this time.

Why did you become a doctor?

When I chose to pursue Oncology, it was mainly because I realized the difference we could make in the lives of patients in their darkest times. My goal is to provide the best cancer care possible, in the most comforting and safe environment. This entire office’s goal is to work as one unit to cater to your needs during this difficult time. For some people this may just be for a short period of time, while for others it could be for the rest of their life. Our goal is to not only treat your cancer, but also care for you and your family.
