I am a board-certified medical oncologist with almost 40 years of experience, which included 18 years of community oncology practice. I am also a veteran of the U.S. Army, having served two years of active duty at HQ Allied Forces Central Europe in the Netherlands. I specialize in the treatment of genitourinary cancers, but my primary focus is on prostate cancer. Although the majority of my patients have advanced prostate cancer, I also provide consultation to newly diagnosed patients and those with early stage prostate cancer. I also see patients with cancers of unknown primary origin and, in some instances, patients with strong clinical evidence of cancer, but who are not yet diagnosed. If the final diagnosis involves a cancer outside my field of expertise, I refer these patients to another doctor at Memorial Sloan Kettering.
My experience with prostate cancer led to my interest in investigating bleeding and clotting problems associated with the disease. More recently I have been investigating prostate cancer in men from Jamaica and elsewhere in the Caribbean, a group that is thought to be at particularly high risk.
