We post reviews for MSK healthcare providers who have at least 30 patient experience surveys completed. If you do not see reviews for a provider, it may be because they do not yet have enough survey responses, or the provider may not be part of the group of healthcare providers included in the survey.
Only outpatient providers are included in the survey. Healthcare providers who only work in the hospital or in urgent care are not included in the survey. Pathologists or researchers who do not provide direct care to patients do not have reviews.

I am a neurologist with special training and a research interest in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of stroke in people with cancer. I am the Director of the Stroke Center and an Associate Professor of Neurology and Neuroscience at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and I am also privileged to be affiliated with Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Neurology Service as a clinical researcher and academic scientist.
Strokes occur more commonly in people with cancer than in the general public. My long-term goal is to improve physicians’ abilities to diagnose and care for these people and their unique needs. I am working with Lisa DeAngelis, Chair of MSK’s Department of Neurology, on a prospective study investigating the reasons why people with cancer face an increased risk for stroke and other clotting events. This innovative study, called MOST-Cancer, uses cutting-edge ultrasound of the brain and biomarker testing in the blood to examine the mechanisms of stroke in people with cancer.
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.
Memorial Sloan Kettering's doctors and scientists are constantly developing new treatments for cancer. MSK is typically running hundreds of clinical trials at a given time.
