About Me

I am a board-certified physician who specializes in occupational medicine and preventive medicine/public health. Since my first residency in preventive medicine I have worked to prevent individuals and populations from becoming ill from potential exposures to toxic chemicals, dusts, and physical stressors (e.g., noise), and to help employees who are ill or injured to return to productive work as quickly as possible.

As a member of Employee Health and Wellness Services (EH&WS) at Memorial Sloan Kettering, my major roles are to work with employees, their treating physicians, their supervisors, and Human Resources to effect the earliest possible return to work after medically-based absences through work accommodations; to work with other safety and health professionals at MSK to reduce risk of work-related injuries and illnesses; and to obtain proper care for MSK employees who are injured on the job.

I see employees in the EH&WS clinic and provide consults to my fellow EH&WS professionals on return-to-work and accommodated work issues.

I am a fellow of the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, in which I have held various leadership positions, including membership on its Board of Directors; and a fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine. Before coming to MSK, I was on the corporate medical staff of three major US corporations, occupational medicine residency director and adjunct professor at Saint Louis University, editor of the American Medical Association’s “Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment,” and director of the Clinical Section at the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health’s Appalachian Laboratory in Morgantown, West Virginia.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
