About Me

I am a board-certified thyroid and head and neck surgeon. In my research, I focus on innovation in healthcare delivery. I am particularly interested in finding ways to improve the care of people with low-risk tumors and cancers, including thyroid nodules and cancers, ensuring that they receive the appropriate amount of care for their personal situation. In my clinical practice, I help patients with thyroid nodules and low-risk cancers make the best decision for them about how to proceed.

Today there is a growing recognition that people with certain low-risk tumors and cancers are overdiagnosed and overtreated. This means that they could do just as well with less-aggressive therapies. My research is focused on finding innovative ways to deliver efficient diagnoses and to help with decision-making for people with low-risk tumors and cancers, such as thyroid nodules.

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. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
