Specialties

Dr. Teresa M Gagliano-Decesare has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Battling Cancer as a Winning Team

I have battled Stage IV metastatic breast cancer for 14 years, of which 5 have been under the care of Dr DeCesare. She is knowledgeable, caring, informed of the latest treatments available, stays ahead of the illness by spelling out clear strategies with scenario planning, she is pragmatic while infusing renewed hope fighting the enemy side-by-side with the patient. She is also open-minded knowing when to seek further support or second-opinions from other institutions when needed, demonstrating her priority is the patient's well being.

disgraceful... go to another oncologist

At first impression she seemed knowledgeable and competent. Unfortunately, she is not. I had the misfortune of having her as my oncologist for 2 years and she did not return phone calls nor did she follow up with a scan that she ordered. I ended up getting a copy of my radiology report by myself and had to find a surgeon by myself without the help from Dr. Decesare. I can not believe that a doctor that is in the field of oncology does not follow through with her patients nor return phone call
