Founded in 1986, the Cancer Institute of Long Island remains one of the premier solo medical oncology private practices on Long Island. We have resisted the trend toward merging practices becausewe understand the need for personal and consistent care. Each patient is treated like a member ofour family. Our compassionate, professional staff is dedicated to providing the highest level of care possible. Because we are physician owned, we are patient driven. This means that we can focus more on providing excellent care, and less on the bottom line. We are not tied to any large medical corporation and we are not hospital-owned. We provide up-to-date and effectivecare that is responsive to you and your needs only. This practice specializes in treating cancers of the breast, lung, gastrointestinal tract (including esophageal, gastric, pancreatic, liver, gallbladder, small and large intestine, rectum and anus) as well as lymphomas, multiple myeloma, chronic leukemias and other diseases of the bone marrow such as chronic anemias, red and white blood cell problems and platelet abnormalities.
