Dr. Robert Gelfand


About Us

Cancer does not go away at five o’clock or on the weekends—neither do I. My patients can reach me at any time, including nights and weekends. I provide the personal approach that is not available in clinic settings, by hospital-based oncologists. In my office, I focus not only on providing the highest quality in patient care, but I also want to ensure the highest level of comfort. For example we provide WiFi, a coffee bar and stocked refrigerator for your refreshment. I believe that comfort during therapy makes a significant difference in your overall experience.
