“We are proud to welcome Dr. Hines to our practice,” said Jeff Vacirca, MD, CEO of NYCBS. “His commitment to patient-centered care perfectly aligns with our mission to provide world-class care to our patients.”

Dr. Hines has a special interest in Thoracic and head and neck malignancies with a focus on lung cancer. He believes working together with his patients to find the best approach to treating their disease is of utmost importance to success.

“It is a privilege to help guide patients through a challenging diagnosis, which is physically and emotionally demanding not only for the patient but their family,” Dr. Hines said.

After obtaining his medical degree from Ross University School of Medicine, Dr. Hines pursued a residency in Internal Medicine at New York-Presbyterian/Queens. Notably, he excelled in his role as Chief Internal Medicine Resident and Hospitalist during his residency. Driven by his passion for oncology and hematology, he further advanced his training through a Hematology/Oncology Fellowship at Northwell Health, where he served as a Chief Fellow. Throughout his residency and fellowship training, he achieved multiple awards, including clinical resident/fellow of the year and an outstanding teacher award. He is well-published and has presented at many national conferences with a focus on non-small cell lung cancer targeted therapies.
