Laura Boucai, MD

About Me

I am a board-certified endocrinologist and internist with particular interest in thyroid cancer. As part of an outstanding team of surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, and nuclear medicine specialists, I work to improve and advance the care of patients with this condition. I completed my internship and residency at the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center, and I was a fellow in Endocrinology and Metabolism at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine/Montefiore Medical Center. As part of my academic career, I spent four years as a faculty member at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and I am currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College.  Devoting time to educating new generations of endocrinologists only reaffirms my passion for the field.

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.
