Specialties

Dr. Jeffrey L Vacirca has the following 4 specialties

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • 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.

  • Hematology & Oncology
  • 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.

Stay away from this Doctor. He is only about making a name for himself and making money. You are only a lab rat to him. I have had personal experiences with him. When you can no longer be a contributing factor in his lab / beneficial to him , he wants no part of you. He then has his PA see you instead. That PA in our case misread blood work which was a crucial error. This Doctor will not even get up out of a meeting when one of his patients was taken out of his office by ambulance. His PA handled this. I wonder if he billed the Insurance company with a PA visit or a visit with him... Maybe Insurance companies should look into this. This Doctor does not follow up at the hospital to look in on his patient once you are in a later stage of your illness, even when distraught family members are continuously calling because of unanwsered questions. The Setauket office is understaffed. Not enough help/ nurses for this facility. Guess he's too selfish and greedy to pay for the proper amount of medical personnel to staff this facility. Choose another Doctor if you love your family member. Don't be fooled by him like I was during the first visit with him.

Patient

i knew I was in good hands right at my 1st visit over 12 years ago. He was so reassuring & I trust him with my life. He always positive & confident about my course of treatment. And he is not an "alarmist" which keeps me always in a good frame of mind.

No better place. When entering what could be a very scary place,the staff and doctors at NSHOA have a way to ease your mind. Your treated as if you were family. I will forever be grateful..Dr.Vacirca, has saved both my husband and myself. The compassion,dedication and his focus on ones health is inspiring. Dr.Vacirca will allow you to see that there are still wonderful and respectful doctors out there who arent constantly looking at the clock making you feel there behind schedule,..He actually does care about the person sitting in front of him. He will speak to you.. not at you. He listens and wants to hear and know your thoughts about the care he's willing to provide. Your a priority to him not just another patient..a person who will get the very best care without doubt. Can't say enough about this man and his practice. No need to go anywhere else to get the care your looking for but also its what you deserve. Community oncology ..close to home where the doctors here put you first. where your treated much different from those big hospitals. Dr.Vacirca, who will forever be the light inside of me. Who my children will refer to as "there" real life hero who saved their parents. Special Special man.
