As a hospitalist at Memorial Sloan Kettering, I care for people who require admission to the hospital for a wide range of issues. Often, these problems are complications from cancer itself or its treatments. With every patient, I make a concerted effort to treat the whole individual as well as the acute issue that brought them to the hospital. I believe that this mindset is integral to providing the most effective and supportive care for people with cancer. Moreover, these personal interactions are the reason I chose to pursue medicine. On a daily basis, I am humbled by the strength and resolve of the patients that I am fortunate enough to encounter. Outside of the hospital, I try my best to participate in anything music-related. Whether that means collecting records or playing my clarinet and saxophone, music continues to be an important aspect of my life.
Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
