The mission of the Cancer Institute of Long Island is to provide patients with personalized, high-quality care. The Institute is dedicated to improving and maintaining health through new, innovative, and less toxic techniques.

The treatments available at the facility include chemotherapy, hormone therapy, antibody therapy, high dose IV vitamin drips, mineral infusions, localized hyperthermia, and killer T-cell enhancement therapy (immuno-oncology techniques). Any of these, or a combination, may be helpful for selected patients.

Dr. Gerstein was a member of the exclusive Biomedical Research Program at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, New York, and the Albany Medical College, where he earned both a Bachelor of Science degree and a Doctor of Medicine degree in 1978, after six years of study. While earning his degree, he was awarded the Mosby Award for Outstanding Research in the field of virology. He then successfully completed a residency in internal medicine as well as a fellowship in medical oncology and hematology at North Shore University Hospital and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital from 1978 through 1984.

Subsequent to his education, he attained board certification in medical oncology and internal medicine through the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM).
