I am a board-certified internist and medical oncologist who specializes in the care of patients with breast cancer, and I practice at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in Commack, Long Island. I am an active member of the Center’s Breast Cancer Disease Management Team, and meet regularly with this team to discuss treatment advances and patient care.
My goal is to provide patients with the highest quality medical care using both standard and investigational treatments. I participate in many of the clinical trials offered by the Breast Cancer Medicine Service aimed at improving patients’ outcomes, and I can enroll patients in studies in Commack or facilitate their entry into studies open only at the Center’s main campus in Manhattan. I was the lead investigator in a recent trial exploring the optimal use of growth factors combined with chemotherapy in treating breast cancer.
