I am a board-certified medical oncologist whose practice is devoted to the care of patients with melanoma.  I work closely with a multidisciplinary team of Memorial Sloan Kettering melanoma surgeons, radiation oncologists, pathologists, nurses, and patient advocates to deliver the best possible care for our patients and their families. 

Significant treatment advances have been made for patients with melanoma, but I believe we can do even better.  My research focuses on improving the immunotherapeutic and targeted therapeutic strategies for the treatment of melanoma.  I am honored to have received research awards from the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the Society for Immunotherapy of CancerI am also excited about having recently published a handbook on all aspects of oncology care, called Pocket Oncology.   

I strongly believe in the importance of creating a close, trusting relationship with each patient as we work together for the best treatment plan possible.
