Board Certifications

Internal Medicine; Critical Care Medicine; Pulmonary Disease

I am board certified in critical care medicine, internal medicine, and pulmonary diseases. Occasionally, people being treated for cancer require extra support. Treatments like major surgery, chemotherapy, or stem cell transplantation can make people sicker before they get better. As an intensivist, I can be called to the bedside to evaluate and assist with patients who are facing medical emergencies. In the intensive care unit, we are highly trained and equipped to offer things like life support and minute-by-minute blood pressure control.

I have particular expertise in treating and managing diseases like septic shock, acute respiratory distress syndrome, and pneumonia. As a leader for the intensivist team, I work with my colleagues to perform minor procedures to assist with these treatments. We can coordinate care with the other specialists in the hospital.


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.
