Medical Oncologists are physicians who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. They determine the type and extent of cancer and provide treatments such as chemotherapy, hormonal and biological therapy. After treatment, they provide follow-up care to monitor progress
The Medical Oncologists of the North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute are committed to improving the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. They provide the latest and most advanced treatments and protocols available, while delivering compassionate care to improve the quality of life of their patients. Our physicians work closely with all cancer disciplines including surgical oncology and radiation oncology as well as other members of the care team such as our oncology certified nurses, oncology social workers and dedicated nutritionists
Through our clinical trials program, with over 25 years of ongoing National Cancer Institute support, our medical oncologists offer patients access to the latest molecular, immunologic and targeted cancer therapies.
