Practice Information

Office hours

The Advanced ROS office is open 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. Treatment times may extend beyond these hours. Dr. Gerstley and Dr. Torrey, work together closely to provide you the care you need. Scheduling issues may make it necessary to see one or the other physician in the event you require immediate attention. Physician consultation and follow-up appointments are made through the front desk staff (Marilyn or Michelle). Appointments for treatment planning (CT simulation) or treatment times are made with your radiation therapist or Chief Therapist (Andrew). If you are not sure what your next appointment entails or have any questions pertaining to your care, please speak to the nursing staff (Chris or Tootie).

After Hours

If you call our office (845-727-0828) after hours, you will be connected to our answering service. The service will contact the physician on call, who will return your call. If your concerns can wait until morning, please call our office directly. If it is an emergency and you require immediate medical assistance, please go directly to the nearest emergency room.

Treatment Hours

Treatment times may extend beyond our regular office hours. We will try to give you appointment times that work best with your schedule. Please understand that many patients are receiving treatment and that there may be a limited number of available of treatment times at the start of your therapy. The technical aspects of your treatment might require a limited option for treatment times as well. If you require coordination of your treatment time with chemotherapy, we will work closely with your Medical Oncologist and make the appropriate arrangements.

Medical Problems or Questions

Please feel free to call us or speak to us when you are here to discuss any of your concerns. We ask that you discuss all medical concerns with the nursing staff (Chris or Tootie) as they will act as liaison for the physician.
