About Me

I am a hematologic oncologist who cares for people with lymphoma, including non-Hodgkin lymphoma. I have a particular focus on Hodgkin lymphoma, systemic T cell lymphoma, and cutaneous T cell lymphoma (a rare type of skin lymphoma).

I have been at Memorial Sloan Kettering for more than 11 years. I am part of a team of lymphoma experts who are committed not only to providing world-class care but also to finding newer and better ways to treat these diseases.

Hodgkin lymphoma is a relatively rare disease, but because of treatment advances, we can often cure it. By incorporating newer drugs into our current standard treatments, we can study how patients tolerate their treatment for Hodgkin lymphoma and can lessen the drugs’ long-term negative effects on the body.

T cell lymphoma is rare and can be challenging to treat. Our clinical trials in T cell lymphoma are testing targeted therapies and immunotherapies aimed at improving our ability to control the disease and patients’ quality of life — as well as the chance of a cure.

When I see patients for the first time, my goal is that they leave the appointment with a clear understanding of their diagnosis and treatment options, as well as the many resources available at MSK to help them cope with their treatment. I am fortunate to work with a team of nurses, social workers, and clinical assistants who create a comforting and supportive environment for our patients. While I understand that it is very scary for people to be told they have cancer, it is important to me that I help make the experience less scary and work with my patients so they feel as well as possible.

Clinical Trials

Research is integral to our mission at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and clinical trials help us discover better forms of patient care and treatment. For you, this could mean access to a new therapy or therapy combination. Click to see a list of the trials I’m currently leading.

Insurance

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.
