Iuliana T. Shapira, MD - Hematology, Medical Oncology

Primary Office Location

My goal is to provide the best care possible to all my patients. I treat my patients as though they are my family members. I will do everything I can ... Read Moreto help patients navigate through the complexity of today's health care system. I always try to explain medical problems in terms that patients can understand. Chances are I can explain things in ways that make good sense to you. As an oncologist my interest is cancer genetics.I believe that each patient is a complex individual with his/her own unique biopsychosocial components. What this really means is that I care about how you feel how you want to be treated how you live and how life has affected you. While I have expertise in cancer I consider you the expert in your own family situation. I treat you as an equal partner in the doctor-patient relationship and consult with you in regard to best treatments that would be appropriate for you. I don't just treat your disease; I treat the complete you. I do spend a reasonable amount of time with my patients and address all of their concerns. But of course if you are in a hurry and just want me to be quick and simple I can do that too!I understand that when you need to see your doctor you don't want to wait 1 to 2 months for an appointment however as I have other duties please try to call for my availability before you come. When I am not in my office there is coverage available so we always have same day appointments available for acute illnesses and emergencies. My staff and I always work hard to ensure that your waiting time in the office is minimal.
