Neeta Soni, M.D., of Southern Tier Cancer Care in Olean is joining UR Medicine’s Wilmot Cancer Institute as Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine effective May 1, 2019. A board-certified medical oncologist, Soni will continue to provide office visits, consultations and chemotherapy infusion services at her current location, 328 Delaware Ave.

Beginning in May, Soni will also see patients at Wilmot’s clinic at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville.

Soni and her staff have provided medical oncology and chemotherapy infusion services in Olean since 2003. They treat all types of cancers and will work closely with the team of subspecialists at Wilmot Cancer Institute to provide additional access to clinical trials and support services.

“My team and I have been committed to providing excellent and compassionate care to our underserved area and are very excited with the opportunity to expand our services to the Wellsville area, with the support of the expert team at University of Rochester Wilmot Cancer institute,” Soni said. “I believe the added convenience and easier access to subspecialists and clinical trials will greatly benefit our patients.” 

“We are delighted to welcome Dr. Soni to our community,” said Eva Benedict, CEO at Jones Memorial Hospital. “Her experience and expertise in caring for oncology patients is well-known and we are happy that her patients will now be able to access quality cancer care closer to home.”

“With Dr. Soni as part of our team, we can help ensure that patients and families in Cattaraugus County continue to have options for high-quality cancer care, and we can also strengthen the services we offer in Allegany County,” said Jonathan W. Friedberg, M.D., M.M.Sc., director of Wilmot Cancer Institute. 

Soni received her medical degree from Byramjee Jeejeebhoy Medical College in India and a master’s degree from Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Millard Fillmore Hospital in Buffalo, followed by a fellowship in medical oncology at Roswell Park.
