Craig P. Nolan, MD

About Me

I am a neuro-oncologist who specializes in the treatment of patients with brain tumors and the neurologic complications of cancer. My academic interest is in the development of and participation in clinical trials of new investigational drugs that may benefit brain tumor patients. My first priority is to provide the highest level of care to patients both  in Manhattan and at our regional care facility in Commack, Long Island.

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