  • 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.

Beth Israel Sux

Yet ANOTHER lame Beth Israel "doctor".This jerk diagnosed me with Lymphoma,ordered multiple tests and...disappeared!!! Not kidding.SIX calls and he refuses to contact me with test results or a follow up report let alone a consultation.A few months later I had another CT scan and the same thing.He is totally AWOL. STAY AWAY FROM KEMPIN.STAY AWAY FROM BETH ISRAEL.

After three years and more than a dozen,mostly incompetant doctors I finally found the guy I needed - Dr. Kempin.He's a wonderful doctor and exceptional person who devotes a lot of time to simply talking with his patients.And he's one of the most experienced hematologists in NYC.It's no surprise he's listed as a "best doctor" and associated with Sloan-Kettering.
