As a practicing oncologist in NYC for the past 25 years, I decided to create stand-alone infusion centers to leverage all the expertise of our extraordinary chemotherapy nurses and staff to benefit you. These are the most highly trained experienced nurses; you definitely only want them on your team. At American Infusion Centers you will find the attentive care, comfort, convenience and kindness to be unsurpassed.

He completed his residency in internal medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City and his fellowship in hematology and oncology at The New York Hospital-Cornell University Medical Center.

Dr. Gelfand has been involved, through charities and private organizations, with the management of patients all over the world. His passion is helping his patients live their lives to the fullest…nothing is more rewarding than that!

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."
