Blood and cancer specialist joins Health Quest Medical Practice

Posted: 10/30/2018

Blood and cancer specialist Dr. Luis Sepúlveda Maldonado recently joined the Health Quest Medical Practice Division of Hematology/Oncology in Poughkeepsie.

“It is an honor to participate in this multidisciplinary team of professionals dedicated to cancer treatment,” Maldonado said. “My commitment is to provide a high level of care with compassion and dignity.”

Although he is trained to treat most hematology-oncology related diseases, Maldonado has research experience working with patients battling lymphoma and multiple myeloma, a type of cancer affecting plasma cells found in bone marrow and play an important role in the function of the immune system.

Prior to joining Health Quest, the Puerto Rico native completed a residency in internal medicine, followed by a hematology-oncology fellowship at the University of Puerto Rico in Rio Piedras.

He earned his bachelor’s and doctorate degrees, with honors, from the University of Puerto Rico. During his residency and fellowship, he worked at the island’s main tertiary care hospital, a referral center for complex diseases.

In his spare time, Maldonado is an animal rescuer who enjoys CrossFit training and basketball. He is fully bilingual in English and Spanish.

The medical oncology office is at 45 Reade Place, Dyson Center for Cancer Care Second Floor, Poughkeepsie. To schedule an appointment, call 845-483-6001 (TTY 1-800-421-1220). For more information, visit
