One of the leading full-service cancer centers in northern New Jersey,
this thriving practice—home to Dr. Rashid Abbasi, Dr. Fazal Bari, Dr. Jason
Levitz and Dr. Naveed Jan—provides a warm and caring one-stop shop for
every aspect of a person’s treatment.
“It’s all about the patients and their families here,” says Dr. Bari, who is
co-chair of the cancer committee and a member of the bioethics committee
at Saint Clare’s Hospital. “We take pride in our ability to individualize care.”
The group practices all forms of community oncology and hematology for
malignancies and tumors, as well as benign and cancerous blood conditions. The team includes Ruby Hanna and Christopher Tully; nurse practitioners Deborah Smith and Jeana Drugac; and physician assistants Alyssa
Sheridan and Kate McCooey.
A complementary medicine division provides supplements and nutrition
counseling, while a specialty pharmacy dispenses medications directly in
a timely manner. Patients receive cutting-edge treatment through participa-
tion in nationally sponsored clinical trials. On-site state-of-the-art infusion
therapy and bone marrow testing, and strong partnerships with neighboring
radiation oncologists add to patient convenience. The practice has its own
inpatient hospice unit and a foundation to help underinsured families.
“We’re always looking to improve our patients’ experiences,” Dr. Jan says.
“We truly care about what’s in their best interest.”
Drs. Abbasi, Bari, Jan, and Levitz are board certified in hematology
and oncology. They are grateful to be able to do what they love every day.
“Sitting down with a patient who has been diagnosed with cancer and help-
ing remove the fears that come with the diagnosis is incredibly rewarding,”
says Dr. Levitz. “And with today’s treatments, we’re curing more patients
than ever before.”
