About Me

I am a hematologist with a particular interest in benign hematologic disorders. I have extensive experience in the diagnosis and management of thrombotic diseases and also hemorrhagic disorders. This is particularly helpful for the complex population of patients with cancer who are at risk for both thrombosis and bleeding. My research interests include studies of the interaction of the coagulation system and cancer. I have published a number of papers in the field, including both clinical and basic science studies. I also actively contribute to the training of students and house officers.

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.
