The medical oncologists/hematologists at the Division of Hematology / Medical Oncology are disease-focused and work as part of a multidisciplinary center of excellence. The physicians collaborate with specialists in surgery, radiation oncology, pathology and diagnostic radiology, as well as supportive and palliative care, to provide the most appropriate and personalized cancer treatment plan for each patient.
As educators, the physicians train tomorrow’s generation of cancer care specialists through academic activities at the Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine and residency and fellowship training programs.
The expert team specializes in leading edge chemotherapy and immunology, as well as hormonal and biological therapies and ensures that each patient receives the most effective treatment for their cancer. With access to oncology nurse navigators to help coordinate treatment and a broad range of support service and programs, each patient is provided with complete, comprehensive care.
All Division of Hematology / Medical Oncology facilities are staffed by Northwell Health Cancer Institute’s team of physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals. These professionals work together to ensure that every patient receives the same personalized, state-of-the-art care, regardless of which location they visit.
