About Me

I am a board-certified internist and pulmonologist with a clinical practice dedicated to the prevention and early detection of breast cancer. As clinical director of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s RISE (Risk Assessment, Imaging, Surveillance & Education) Program, I care for thousands of women at increased risk for breast cancer due to such factors as genetic predisposition and family history of the disease, and biopsy results showing atypical cells.

Through RISE, I help women make decisions about breast cancer screening, strategies for reducing their risk of cancer, and maintaining overall health. Ultimately, I hope to improve the overall well-being of my patients by helping to reduce their anxiety about breast cancer.

I work closely with nurse practitioner Martha Rodriguez. We combine our expertise to provide comprehensive care to our patients at every step of their cancer journey.

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.
