I am a surgical breast oncologist with a practice dedicated exclusively to the treatment of breast diseases, and I perform all aspects of breast cancer surgery.  I see patients both at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center in Manhattan as well as at our regional care facility in Commack, Long Island.  At both locations a multidisciplinary team approach is utilized to ensure delivery of the highest quality breast cancer care.  

In addition to providing compassionate patient care, I am also involved in research that addresses our care of breast cancer patients.  I have previously studied the utility of MRI in the work-up of breast cancer patients and have investigated the surgical treatment of triple negative cancers.  Currently I am engaged in research to help personalize the screening recommendations for women at high risk for the development of breast cancer.  My hope is that my research here at Memorial Sloan Kettering will enable us to deliver more individualized care in the future.
