All cancer patients are discussed at conferences attended by these cancer specialists. There are multiple cancer specialists involved simultaneously and from the beginning. This is why cancer center accreditation is so critical. This level of team involvement is what is required. Dr. Mangiameli’s program is the only accredited cancer center from Patchogue to Montauk and Orient. He has offices in Patchogue, Southampton, and Riverhead. Every site visit of Dr. Mangiameli’s team since 2014 by the American College of Surgeons has resulted in a perfect full accreditation.
