About Me

I am a radiologist who specializes in breast and body imaging. This includes mammography, digital breast tomosynthesis, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, and image-guided breast interventional procedures. I have experience caring for people from all walks of life. I appreciate that every patient is truly unique and use this appreciation to guide my practice. I see patients at MSK Basking Ridge and the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center.

I am committed to improving the experience of each patient who comes through our doors. The patient is always the most important person in the room. I serve on the Patient-Centered Care and Delivery Committee. Our goal is to provide the best, most personalized cancer care, knowing that our patients are just like us. They are family members and friends who deserve the same care, kindness, and respect that we would like for ourselves and our loved ones.

I am dedicated to working with both patients and their care teams to help them find answers to their questions. As doctors, by taking into account an individual’s needs we improve not only our relationship with them but also their outcome.

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.
