Medical Oncology & Hematology

Dr. Nyatanga made a decision to pursue a career in medicine after having the opportunity to take care of sick children at an orphanage in Zimbabwe as a teenager. In a place where vulnerable populations succumbed to very preventable diseases, she learned to not only appreciate the importance of preventive healthcare, but also the critical role that modern medicine plays in treating and curing disease. A special focus in Hematology and Oncology allowed her the opportunity to integrate both in taking care of her patients.

As a fierce patient advocate, Dr. Nyatanga goes the extra mile to ensure patients get the best and most advanced care possible. She also enjoys doing life with them. “So while we fight cancer together, do life together too,” she said. “I believe in a holistic approach to patient care and strongly believe in empowering patients to participate actively in their health journey.”

Dr. Nyatanga works with patients on all aspects of their lives to ensure nutritional, emotional, and social alignment with overall health goals. “I enjoy taking time to explain things to my patients and take joy when they fully understand their disease, their treatment options, and overall plan of care,” she said. “It’s quite fulfilling when patients come in and excitedly tell me all of the things they ate to get their potassium or hemoglobin up. That’s engagement, and I thoroughly enjoy it”

Dr. Nyatanga received her degree in biology from Central Methodist University in Fayette, Missouri, and then her Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from the Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. She completed her residency in internal medicine at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, followed by a fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at Hofstra North Shore-LIJ School of Medicine, Monter Cancer Center in New Hyde Park, NY. In her free time, Dr. Nyatanga enjoys traveling, hiking, shopping, and golfing.

Dr. Nyatanga is thrilled to be a part of NYCBS’s well-organized and efficient practice, providing high-quality, cost-effective care. She said, “There is a palpable culture of ensuring that above all else, patients come first. Everyone here absolutely loves what they do, and they love taking care of patients and making a difference. The staff takes pleasure in going the extra mile for their patients, and the organization dedicates a lot of time and resources to ensure patients can afford to get the care they need.”

  • "I love Dr Nyantanga a lot, for her hard-work and good job. I appreciated her more, especially when she referred me to go and do CT Scan of a particular body part, which l complained about. While the test was being done, the imaging revealed another body part which was not part of the test. When Dr Nyantanga saw something on the result of that test, she set up a virtual meeting appointment with me at my home from, her Office, and she had a conversation with me on that matter. I really appreciated that effort. She then advised and also referred me to go and do a CT Scan of the revealed body part, for her to make sure nothing bad is wrong with me, concerning the result."
