About Me

I am a board-certified radiologist specializing in breast and body imaging. I joined MSK in 2001 after completing a residency in diagnostic radiology at New York-Presbyterian Hospital and a fellowship in breast and body imaging at MSK.

As a member of the Breast Imaging Service, I perform screening and diagnostic breast imaging, including mammography, ultrasound, and breast MRI. I am an expert in all types of breast interventional procedures. These include stereotactic, ultrasound-guided, and MRI-guided biopsies, as well as radioactive seed and wire localizations. I am also a member of the Body Imaging Service, for which I interpret body CT scans and plain radiographs.

I am involved in research with my colleagues in radiology, surgery, pathology, and medical physics. We recently published papers on how hormones influence breast MRI results and why high-risk lesions found by percutaneous core needle biopsies need to be removed.

I enjoy teaching Weill Cornell medical residents and breast fellows as well as many visiting observers. I teach them how to interpret images, perform biopsies, and interact with people with cancer in a thoughtful and caring manner. I enjoy working closely with my colleagues in the Breast Service, as well as other surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and pathologists. Together, we give high-quality compassionate patient care.

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.
