Alice Zervoudakis, MD

About Me

I am a board-certified internist, medical oncologist, and hematologist who specializes in caring for people with gastrointestinal cancers. These include colorectal cancer, pancreatic cancer, hepatobiliary cancer, and gastroesophageal cancer. I see patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Westchester.

I work closely with a team of experts including surgical and radiation oncologists to offer our patients the best treatment. I am also involved in research for new cures and therapies. I help patients enroll in cancer clinical trials to ensure they are given the most cutting-edge treatment options available. I previously researched the association between reproductive history and colon cancer risk. Currently, I am interested in studying the link between obesity and colon cancer. 

Before I joined MSK, I was an attending physician in hematology/oncology at Winthrop University Hospital on Long Island, where I focused on gastrointestinal oncology.

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.
