Learn about Dr. Scheff

Care Philosophy

The emphasis of my practice is the treatment of lung cancer. I derive tremendous satisfaction from caring for cancer patients and enjoy being part of an outstanding team at Weill Cornell Medicine. Lung cancer treatments are evolving at an ever increasing pace, and treatments are increasingly selected based on individual patient and tumor characteristics. Our group is at the forefront of this revolution, delivering to our patients the latest advances in chemotherapies, targeted therapies, and immunotherapies. 

I am also Director of our fellowship training program. In this capacity I am intimately involved in teaching and mentoring future medical oncologists and hematologists.

Patient Comments (2)
in West Hempstead, NY |
Dr. Scheff and his staff worked well as a team. My appointments were well managed, and as a client I was always treated with care and consideration. Dr. Scheff never rushed me; instead he patiently addressed the hundreds of questions and fears I held about my cancer and my future treatments. He was kind and at times witty which made him very likeable. He could not have behaved more professionally, and I would have no hesitation in highly recommending him in the future.
in Kingston, NY |
I watched as my partner of 44 years lay helpless with terminal lung cancer as Dr. Scheff abandonded us as he vacationed in Provincetown Ma...I believe as a gay man Mr. Cessna, my beloved soulmate, was ridiculed,tortured, abused and neglected. A nurse who occasionally passed by his room in the middle of the night found him bleeding to death on the bathroom floor...pints of blood transfusions follow that day and he temporarily pulled through, but it was a disgrace......
