Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Gelfand "It has always been an honor to me to be trusted with people's health problems, especially when they are serious. Each patient is different, as each disease is different, so treatment recommendations must be tailored to each patient. At Hudson Hematology Oncology, we work as a team to provide the optimal treatment plan for every patient. In this environment, patients are encouraged to learn, and understand their disease and treatment, and to participate in the decision-making processes."
