Christina Cellini, M.D.View Contact & Scheduling
I chose this field because of my exposure to wonderful, talented and caring mentors during medical school and residency rotations, as well as from my research experience at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City.
Since I believe the best approach to care is a collaborative partnership that takes individual patient needs into account, I work together with my patients to help achieve the best outcome to speed recovery and maximize overall health. I bring to the table my skills, experience and education, but my patients bring a deep understanding of their own bodies that no one else can match. As my patient, you can be confident knowing I am here to listen – and to partner with you to deliver the best possible custom-tailored care.
Conditions I Treat
- Colon cancer/polyps
- Rectal cancer
- Anal cancer
- Appendiceal cancer
-Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's and Ulcerative Colitis)
