Anesthesiology

I am a board-certified anesthesiologist and Director of Anesthesia Services at Memorial Sloan Kettering Monmouth. At MSK Monmouth, we are proud to offer our patients access to surgical and interventional procedures closer to home and my goal is to provide them with safe and exceptional anesthesia care.

I am also interested in improving the surgical experience for our patients who are lactating. My colleagues and I have authored hospital policies, published papers, and given presentations on perioperative lactation.
