I am a board-certified internist and nephrologist with special expertise in diagnosing and treating the kidney diseases associated with cancer and its treatments. Doctors with this type of expertise (sometimes called “nephro-oncologists”) provide care to patients who are experiencing:

  • the deleterious effects of chemotherapy on the kidneys (nephrotoxicity)
  • severely impaired renal function requiring dialysis, and who also need chemotherapy to treat their cancer
  • renal diseases (nephropathies) associated with solid tumors and hematological malignancies
  • any of the complex metabolic disturbances that cancer patients can develop that also affect the kidneys.

I joined Memorial Sloan Kettering in 1978. Along with other doctors on the Renal Service I consult with colleagues throughout the Memorial Sloan Kettering (surgeons, oncologists, pediatric oncologists, other specialists, and physicians in the intensive care unit) to help provide optimal care for patients who are experiencing the disorders described above.


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.
