Physician Sub-specialization for Cancer Care

The Region’s Only Provider of Specialty Cancer Care

NYOH providers are board-certified to treat all cancers and blood disorders; however, many of our providers in addition to their specialty (i.e., medical oncology, radiation oncology, neuro-oncology or hematology), also sub-specialize. They have numerous years of experience treating a specific cancer type or blood disorder and take the extra step to receive continuing medical education focusing on diagnosing and treating the type of cancer they specialize in. They become experts in a particular specialty, staying up-to-date in the latest technologies, therapies and precision medicine to help patients with a specific cancer have better outcomes.

Currently, three of our NYOH locations offer sub-specialization: Albany, Albany Medical Center and Clifton Park Cancer Centers.
