Dr. Weiner encouraged Dr. Imperio to pursue a career specifically in the realm of hematology and oncology.

"The key to my success is that I met very devoted teachers along the way who encouraged me," Dr. Imperio said. "I've also had compassion for my patients and have been very patient with those I've treated."

Dr. Imperio earned his Medical degree at the University of Padua College of Medicine Medical School. He then went on to complete his Internship at Nassau University Medical Center, followed by a Residency in Internal Medicine at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, as well as a Residency in Internal Medicine at the Sisters Charity Healthcare System.

Aside from his work at Seaview Hospital Rehab Center, where he has volunteered over 7,000 hours, Dr. Imperio is affiliated with Coney Island Hospital in Brooklyn, New York.

As an accomplished medical professional, Dr. Imperio has contributed to a number of articles in medical journals, titles including: "The distribution patterns of biatrial myxomas" and "The polls: poll trends. AIDS - an update."
