Radiation Oncology

I am a radiation oncologist who specializes in using advanced techniques to provide highly effective, precise, minimally-invasive, and personalized cancer treatment. Some of these techniques include intensity-modulated radiation therapyimage-guided radiation therapystereotactic body radiation therapy, and adaptive radiation therapy. My practice is located at MSK Commack, on Long Island, and I am proud to be part of a team that delivers world-class care to members of the community.

Long before I became a cancer physician, I was the daughter of a cancer patient. I learned that the greatest comforts come in the forms of compassion, knowledge, and collaboration. I became inspired to be a radiation oncologist who empowers patients by providing education, working with them and their care teams to make personalized treatment plans, and participating in research that helps us not only deliver the highest standards of care, but learn how to redefine and exceed them.

My research goal is to improve cancer care by evaluating how to best incorporate information and technology in the diagnosis, surveillance, and management of patients. I have studied ways to use ultrasensitive prostate-specific antigen after radical prostatectomy to better determine a patient’s risk for recurrence. This helps guide if and/or when a patient may need radiation therapy after the prostate is removed.

I am currently studying the potential benefit of imaging during head and neck radiation therapy to assess how the treatment is progressing and to help minimize potential damage and maximize the chance for cure. I am committed to delivering the best possible care, and to that end I participate in multiple head and neck cancer and prostate cancer clinical trials so that my patients have as many options as possible.

I use my first meeting with patients as an opportunity to provide information and context so they can better understand their cancer. I also explain how radiation fits into their larger treatment strategy and the various options available to them. I try to get to know my patients’ priorities, concerns, and questions so that we can become the most effective team working towards a common goal.

In my free time, I enjoy running, yoga, writing, and crafts.
