Today we are excited to hear from Dr. Sadia Riaz.

Dr. Riaz is a board certified Hematologist/Oncologist. This specialty deals with disorders of the blood as well as various tumors and cancers. Training is intensive, with three years of internal medicine residency followed by three years of fellowship.   

Dr. Riaz started her career in an accelerated 7-year program at NYIT COM, followed by post-doctorate training at a large academic institution.
