I am a pathologist with expertise in cytopathology, fine needle aspiration biopsies, and thoracic pathology. I have special expertise in performing ultrasound-guided fine needle aspirations. I work closely with MSK’s head and neck surgeons and radiologists to provide our patients with this minimally invasive procedure with rapid results. I am also part of the Thoracic Disease Management Team. I collaborate with my colleagues in surgery, medical oncology, and radiation therapy to care for people with lung, pleural, and mediastinal tumors.
