Iqra Choudary, a board-certified medical oncologist and hematologist, has joined Hematology-Oncology Associates of CNY (HOA) in a full-time capacity in its Auburn location.
“Continuing our commitment to caring for patients where they live, we are thrilled Dr. Choudary will be dedicated to the Auburn community,” said Maryann Roefaro, HOA’s chief executive officer. “Having most recently practiced rural cancer medicine in Northern Maine, Dr. Choudary is looking forward to continuing to serve patients in a smaller community, while also being closer to her family in Toronto, where she was born and raised.”
A graduate of American University of Antigua College of Medicine, Choudary completed an internal medicine residency at Rochester Regional Health System and specialty training at the University of Rochester Medical Center-Wilmot Cancer Institute.
As a fully staffed cancer center, rather than a satellite office, HOA Auburn offers patient care close to home in the Health Central building at 37 W. Garden St., which offers free parking. The center is staffed by a full-time physician, nurse practitioner, pharmacist, nurses and assistants. Among the services provided are: intravenous medication services for cancer, blood disorders and other non-oncology treatments; medication dispensing and nutritional consult appointments.
