Most recently on staff with CCS Oncology, where she has practiced for the last four years, Dr. Ramkumar is extensively trained, with board certifications in four specialties: medical oncology, hematology, internal medicine and hospice/palliative medicine. Also a former Roswell Park hospitalist, she is pleased to be rejoining the Roswell Park network of practices.

“Dr. Ramkumar is a highly regarded, well trained physician who is well known and loved in the community,” says Thomas Schwaab, MD, PhD, who oversees Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center’s community practices as Chief of Strategy, Business Development and Outreach at the Buffalo-based comprehensive cancer center. “She has many years of experience in both Niagara Falls and Amherst, and we are very happy to welcome her back to the Roswell Park family.”

Dr. Ramkumar sees patients with most types of solid tumors as well as benign and malignant hematologic conditions. She also provides palliative care.

A graduate of The Tamil Nadu Dr. M.G.R. Medical University in Chennai, India, Dr. Ramkumar completed an internal medicine internship from The University of Oklahoma-College of Medicine in Tulsa, OK, and an internal medicine residency at Rochester General Hospital in Rochester, N.Y., where she received a Research Scholar and Best Emergency Room Resident award.
