Hugo E. Valencia, M.D.
Dr. Valencia has published, participated in and presented research at national conferences but measures his personal achievements in a different way. "Cancer is not an easy disease to treat because it's not all about knowing what drug to prescribe or what test to order. It's about treating people with respect and empathy." During his years of training, he has been recognized for his leadership, teaching, and compassionate bedside manner and served as chief resident of his residency program at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
Dr. Valencia is board certified in Medical Oncology and Internal Medicine.
When out of the office, Dr. Valencia enjoys soccer, running along the Erie Canal, traveling to new places, volunteering locally and spending time with friends and family.
