I am a hematologic oncologist who specializes in the diagnosis and management of lymphoma. It is an honor to be a part of the MSK lymphoma team, which strives to provide personalized and compassionate care to our patients. My clinical focus is on caring for people with lymphoma who require inpatient admission to Memorial Hospital or the David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care at Memorial Sloan Kettering. I work closely with members of a multidisciplinary team of experts and outpatient providers to ensure comprehensive and seamless care.

Being admitted to the hospital can be a terrifying experience, and I strive to help by addressing any questions or concerns that patients and their families have and by serving as their advocate.

It is an honor to be a part of the MSK lymphoma team, which strives to provide personalized and compassionate care to our patients.
