Board Certifications


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.


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.
