Dr. Cristi L Aitelli has the following 2 specialties
- 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.<br>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.

Wonderful Caring Physician
Self-verified patient of Dr. Cristi L Aitelli - Posted on October 20th, 2018
Dr. Aitelli treated me for years and she deserves a higher rating, but last years a change in my chemotherpy medication was made, even though I was doing fine on my previous chemo regimen. Apparently no one took my cardiac history into account. Two days after receiving this new chemo, I required admission to the ICU for 5 days with a fast heart rate, low blood presure, and kidney failure. I now have permanent heart damage, and suffer from congestive heart failure. Only 3 months before receiving this new chemo my cardiologist gave me a stress treadmill and cleared me to start training for 60 mile bike races, which I was doing with no problems. If the warning on the dangers of giving this new chemo drug to patients with a history of heart disease had been heeded, it is likely I would never have never received this medication, and would not now be disabled. Due to my heart issues I lost my job because I was off work for several weeks recovering due to the heart damage. Needless to say I have changed to a new hematologist.
