Dr. Conti has been practicing here in New Jersey for nearly 25 years. He was drawn to oncology because of the science and ongoing advancement in this specialized field—and because the specialty allows him to develop close relationships with his patients.

Dr. Conti is known for his innovative work at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where he conducted leading-edge research for the treatment of colon cancer. The research he participated in has become the standard of care for colon cancer throughout the country.

Dr. Conti strives to provide highly individualized care for each and every patient he treats. His first priority is to listen and understand each person’s unique needs. Then he tailors the most advanced treatments available to meet those needs, while educating and counseling both the patient and his or her family members.

Above all else, Dr. Conti strives to give patients state-of-the-art care with the best chance of success, in a warm and caring environment. He has established an excellent network of connections to treat challenging cases, including rare diagnoses, atypical presentations of common cancers, and unique patient challenges due to medical or other conditions.

In addition to his practice here at Essex Oncology of North Jersey, Dr. Conti is the medical director at Atlantic Hospice, a position that has enabled him to provide superb palliative and hospice care to patients when appropriate. For the past two years, Dr. Conti has also served as Medical Director of the cancer program at Hackensack University Medical Center Mountainside Hospital. He is proud to use this opportunity to ensure that hospital-based patient care meets the same uncompromising standards that he provides through his office-based practice.
