Board Certifications

Internal Medicine; Pediatrics

As a hospitalist, I care for people with all types of cancer who are admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center for various medical conditions. These may be related to their cancer and its treatment or to other acute medical problems such as heart disease, COPD, pneumonia, renal failure, and pain. During a patient’s hospital stay, the hospitalist is in close contact with the primary oncologist to coordinate care and develop a cohesive medical plan. 

I am particularly interested in initiatives aimed at delivering the highest-quality care to hospitalized people during evening and weekend hours. My responsibilities include bedside supervision and teaching of residents training at MSK during the evening hours, as well as leading a team of physicians and physician assistants who cover the medical oncology services overnight. 


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
