Commack, NY — Dr. Jennifer Aviado-Langer DNP is a nurse practitioner at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the largest and oldest cancer center in the world.

“I value our patients input in their plan of care as I witness their tenacity to endure after having been diagnosed with a terminal condition,” says Dr. Aviado-Langer. “I am here to support and maintain their motivation to undergo the rigors of their cancer diagnosis, hoping that their individual and family needs will be fulfilled.”

Reporting to the Department of Anesthesia, Dr. Aviado-Langer works in a nurse practitioner-led and nurse practitioner-driven pre-surgical testing unit. She splits her practice between Memorial Sloan-Kettering’s Manhattan and Commack campuses.

Dr. Aviado-Langer works with a team of nurse practitioners and patient care technicians, conducting patient histories and physical examinations, ordering indicated lab tests, echocardiograms, and radiographic tests warranted by the patients’ history and health states.

Dr. Aviado-Langer says her patients encompass a broad spectrum from late teens to mature adults and the geriatric population.

“Cancer does not discriminate,” says Dr. Aviado-Langer. “It really is a reflective and humbling experience, seeing patients with a terminal condition who are filled with motivation to get themselves better,”

Dr. Aviado-Langer adds, “Our lives are borrowed and as stewards of our bodies, we might as well take the best of care. This means, fostering patient motivation, positivity, and endurance for the rigors that lie ahead for both themselves and their families, achieving better outcomes with the power of positive thinking and self-actualizing better health.
