I am a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with sarcomas. These include soft tissue sarcomas as well as bone sarcomas. Currently, my practice is focused on the inpatient setting, where I see patients who have been admitted to the hospital. To schedule an outpatient visit with one of my colleagues, please call 646-497-9067. I work closely with other experts in the field, including pathologists, radiation oncologists, and surgeons, all of whom specialize in sarcoma. This team-based approach ensures that we develop an appropriate treatment plan that respects our patients’ wishes and their individual circumstances.

Cancer is an extremely nerve-wracking diagnosis, especially when the diagnosis is a rare cancer like sarcomas. My approach to patient care centers on the belief that knowledge and understanding can help remove the stigma and fear associated with a sarcoma diagnosis. My team and I work tirelessly and with compassion to help patients and their families understand and cope with this rare disease.

Outside of providing patient care, I spend much of my time as a physician-scientist working in the laboratory. I focus on understanding how tumor plasticity drives cancer progression. The goal of my work is to understand how tumors depend on plasticity to evolve, and how we can take advantage of this dependence to develop new therapies.

Our team-based approach ensures that we develop an appropriate treatment plan that respects our patients’ wishes and their individual circumstances.
