Joseph Cirrone, MD
Martin Silverstein, MD
Paul Youn, MD
Cirrone has made it his lifelong ambition to learn as much about the cancer process, the treatment of cancer, and the cancer patient. He gravitated to the Radiation Oncology field for the challenge of mastering a single modality for the benefits of treating patients and for its multidisciplinary approach towards cancer treatment. During his Radiation Oncology training he learned how to treat all types of cancer and has treated many difficult cases. One of his interests in Radiation Oncology is the treatment of patients with organ preservation protocol. Radiation Oncology has been used in many areas to eradicate cancer while preserving function of the treatment site. Such sites include head and neck cancers, breast cancer, and rectal/anal cancer. Dr. Cirrone understands his patients are in a difficult time in their lives and he strives to treat each patient with compassion and the respect they deserve.
Dr. Cirrone graduated Albany Medical College and took a residency in Internal Medicine at North Shore University Hospital (NSUH) because the hospital was affiliated with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). During his training at NSUH he spent much of his time at MSKCC where first learned to take care of cancer patients. After NSUH he trained in the Radiation Oncology program at Downstate University Hospital (DUH) in Brooklyn. After completing his residency in DUH he became an Attending at Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn. In 2000, Dr. Cirrone transferred to New York Cancer & Blood Specialists and moved his family to Suffolk County.
Martin Silverstein is a board-certified radiation oncologist. He received his BA and MD degrees from Boston University and completed his residency in radiation oncology at the SUNY Health Science Center in Brooklyn where he served as chief resident. His post-doctoral training began with a surgical residency at Montefiore Medical Center/Albert Einstein College of Medicine and was followed by additional training in urology at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, spurring his interest in prostate cancer treatment.
Following his residency, Dr. Silverstein was an assistant professor in the Department of Radiation Oncology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and served as an assistant attending in Radiation Oncology at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.
Dr. Silverstein joined New York Cancer & Blood Specialists (formerly NSHOA) in 1995.
