Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center

I am a radiation oncologist who has extensive experience in caring for people with a variety of cancers. My practice is located at Memorial Sloan Kettering Bergen, in New Jersey, and my goal is to offer personalized care that is based on science and compassion.

Communication is key to maximizing quality of life for my patients. That’s why I always take time to speak with them and their families about their diagnosis, concerns, and treatment goals. I am also in constant communication with a team of experts from many different areas, including medical and surgical oncology, radiology, and pathology.

I have significant experience in treating a wide range of tumors using advanced techniques, including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS)/stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), and image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT). These techniques allow me to deliver radiation directly to a precise area, while minimizing damage to healthy tissue. 

I also conduct clinical research at MSK’s Manhattan location. My research focuses on gastrointestinal cancers and lymphomas. It involves two main areas: studying predictors of response to radiotherapy using next-generation sequencing and introducing investigational drugs into the clinic.

Cancer can be frightening, and can shake patients and their families to their roots. I want my patients to know they are not in this alone, and that they have an entire team of experts here to support them.

Communication is key to maximizing quality of life for my patients. That’s why I always take time to speak with them and their families about their diagnosis, concerns, and treatment goals.
