- Hematology and Oncology
An Oncologist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of different cancers. This physician has extensive knowledge of the different signs and symptoms of cancer, as well as the various methods of treatment.
Oncologists diagnose cancer through methods such as biopsy, endoscopy, X-ray, blood tests, ultrasound, and different forms of nuclear medicine. They treat cancer through surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy, hormone therapy, or antibody treatments.
If it is determined that a cancer cannot successfully be treated, oncologists then focus on providing palliative care, the use of pain medication to make a dying person more comfortable.
- Medical Oncology
Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.
- Internal Medicine
An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

I'd like to comment to the obviously politically incorrect and ignorant person that used the expression, "Spanish biller". If you're going to write about someone, at least take the time to learn their names. And by the way, the reason the staff is so fantastic is because of the office manager, not in spite of her. I have been a patient of Dr. Goldenberg's for close to 10 years and I've seen how hard she works.You should get your facts straight before you decide to publicly try to ruin someone's reputation.
I am a patient of Dr. Goldenberg for about 5 years. Dr. Goldenberg is a brilliant man and has helped me deal with my cancer. His staff over the years has changed a lot which leads me to wonder the type of management the office is under. Recently, his two receptionists are fantastic. The two people who draw blood are very good. His spanish biller is very helpful and diligent. His two nurses are beyond words. My only worry is his office manager. I hear a lot of complaints especially from patients. She is very rude and unprofessional. Also, I have heard her speak to her staff in a very demeaning manner. I see why now, the staff changes periodically. I have to say, besides his office manager..The staff and Dr. Goldenberg are great. Maybe he should consider a change in management.
I have been a patient of Dr. Goldenberg's for over 8 years. He is the most dedicated, caring, compassionate doctor that I have ever met.This is a man that gets up at 5:00 a.m. every morning to be at NYU be 6:00 to do rounds for his hospitalized patients. He then heads straight to his office and sees over 40 patients a day. I know from his staff that he is in the office working, everyday until after 7:00 p.m.Anyone that knows him, can see how much he cares about his patients and will never give up on them.
