One of my fondest childhood memories is of following my father around during his weekend hospital rounds. It was no surprise when I followed in his footsteps, and those of my grandfather, and became a physician. Both my father and my grandfather felt that medicine was a privilege – not a job – and I am proud to share their sentiments.

I pride myself on paying close attention to all of my patients and being available for them – and their families – at all times. I recognize that many of my patients are enduring the most difficult trial of their lives. I am honored to guide them on their path to health.

Although I have been in private practice in Manhattan for the past eleven years, I am delighted to join a practice that shares my philosophy of putting the patient first.

Dr. Rachel Kramer received her undergraduate degree at the University of Virginia, and her MD at the University Of Maryland School Of Medicine. She did her residency in internal medicine at Brown University. She completed her fellowship in hematology and oncology at the Cornell University Medical Center.

Dr. Kramer is on the voluntary faculty at Mt. Sinai Hospital and Lenox Hill Hospital. She enjoys teaching the fellows at Lenox Hill Hospital.

What our clients have to say.

"Dr. Gelfand and his staff are professional and supportive. I have always had a good experience, and I go on a quarterly basis for iron infusions. It is always easy to make appointments and I love the new midtown location - spacious and easier to get to. Dr. Gelfand has always been available to talk about any concerns and answer my questions."

"Dr. Gelfand and his staff are outstanding/A+++. I’ve been a patient for almost seven years, and my experience has always been positive, pleasant and reassuring. AIC provides exceptional treatment, advice, and personal, compassionate care. Highly recommend."

"I started going to AIC this year and I can’t believe how much better my experience is as a result. AIC’s facility is modern with comfortable seating and nice decor. The chairs are padded leather with controls and so comfortable you could fall asleep in them. (I used to sit in a hard chair for three hours.) The staff and nurses are incredibly attentive and nice, always offering me blankets and other items. There is free tea, coffee, cocoa, magazines and other items to make you as comfortable as possible. And there is room for my husband or another family member to accompany me. Overall, this is as good an experience as you can possibly have under the circumstances and I’m very glad I switched!"

"Aside from being a brilliant Doctor, Dr Gelfand is the most caring, compassionate Doctor I have ever known."
