I see Dr. Nahum for blood clots, he monitors my weekly INR Blood Test (Home Testing). I have been seeing him for over 15 years and couldn't ask for a better Hematologist. He is compassionate, thorough and just a very nice man/doctor. His primary practice is dedicated to Oncology and he is Chief of Oncology at Hackensack Jersey Shore University Medical Center, I have heard many stories of how he has saved the lives of Cancer Patients. He is also a tremendous Philanthropist!!!

Dr Nahum is an extraordinary Doctor and person. I was referred to him by other Top Docs as he had treated their family members. I Immediately experienced the confidence, professionalism, EXPERIENCE coupled with the COMPASSION. Dr Nahum personally treated my Dad and managed his team of other Docs to give my Dad 12+ years of quality great life during his battle with cancer. His office is warm friendly and compassionate. The walls have many letters and cards of appreciative patients. Top Doc!!

I was treated for back pain by my primary care physician for 4 months. He never ordered a MRI. I had been seeing Dr. Nahum for other reason. I saw him mentioned the back pain and he ordered an MRI. It showed lung cancer. He explained everything and what options were available. Before I left his office he ha arrangements for the hospital and had a team he works with, surgeons, radiologists in place. He followed through with consultation with them to set up a plan of treatment.
