Buffalo Medical Group – Oncology Team Honored by Palliative Care Buffalo

Cheektowaga, NY – Palliative Care Buffalo is proud to recognize our partnership with the Buffalo Medical Group (BMG) Oncology Team for providing quality integrative healthcare for their patients and families.

“We are privileged to collaborate with our colleagues at the BMG Oncology Group who were among the first in Western New York to recognize the benefits of supportive and palliative care for their patients facing serious illness,”stated Dr. John Tangeman, Associate Medical Director.

Dr. Robert Zielinski, BMG Oncologist comments, “We are very happy to have developed an invaluable working relationship with Palliative Care Buffalo’s Home Connections team. Patients in treatment for cancer often need more help than we can provide from our office. Also, there comes a time for many that more treatment is not necessarily better treatment. No two cancer cases are the same, and working with our Palliative Care partners is another way we at Buffalo Medical Group Oncology are always trying to meet the unique personal needs of the patients and families we see.”

Timely palliative care for oncology patients has been shown to improve outcomes and results in higher patient and family satisfaction. Our sincere gratitude for exceptional care collaboration!


Buffalo Medical Group's comprehensive patient care begins with a team approach. That team includes experienced physicians, surgeons, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, nutritionists, behavioral health specialists and more who work closely every day to offer you a continuum of care that meets all your health care needs. 

Hospice Buffalo serves approximately 500 patients each day in assisted living communities, private homes, hospitals and nursing homes, providing care, support, advocacy, and education to people impacted by serious illness and loss.
