I am a hospitalist — a doctor who takes care of patients who are in the hospital. I have worked in this role since 2013. My goal every day is to provide the kind of care for my patients — compassion, attention, and communication — that I would want for my loved ones. My daily work is focused on collaboration with patients, their families, and the outpatient oncologists and other staff that know my patients best. We work together to address the unique challenges faced by our patients.
If you are in the hospital under my care, you will see my team at least once per day. This team consists of doctors, nurses, and other health care professionals. We will listen to your concerns, find out how you are feeling, answer your questions, and work together to build your care plan.
In addition to my clinical work, I am Director of Quality for the Hospital Medicine Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering. I am passionate about improving our everyday hospital activities as well as exploring new and innovative ways to further patient care, communication, and collaboration. I teach and perform research in this area as well.
