Gerald Gendron – Mar 31, 2021
One of the warmest, down to earth, most compassionate doctors. I am so lucky to have him as my oncologist. Always punctual, concerned about my emotional as well as physical health, caring, and an incredible man. Takes the time to know you as a person and to always be sure you are ok. Consider yourself very lucky if he’s your oncologist. A real gem.

Dr. Hochberg was so kind and thoughtful about treating my cancer. At a young age of 27, I was diagnosed with Lymphoma, he eased me through this hard time and comforted my family, when they were very unsure of my outcome. Now, I am 31 and cancer free, all thanks to Dr. Hochberg!

ANGELA MCLAUGHLIN in Mont Vernon, NH – Sep 27, 2019
Dr.Hochberg gives me his full attention at all appointments. He is never distracted. He listens intently to questions and concerns. When I was first diagnosed with Non Hodgkins Lymphoma, Dr. Hochberg dedicated over and hour and a half to explain and answer all my questions, addressed my fears and concerns, was very easy to talk to and used language I cou;d easily understand. He is an amazing, knowledgeable, dedicated doctor.
