I am a medical oncologist with more than 40 years of experience, including service as a medical officer in the US Army. I have been a member of MSK’s Genitourinary Oncology Service since 1993. I care for people with prostate cancer and other genitourinary cancers. My focus is on those with newly diagnosed prostate cancer who want advice about the best initial treatment. I also care for those who need treatment for more-advanced disease or cancer that has come back. I have a strong interest in quality assurance and performance improvement. I helped lead MSK’s quality assurance initiative for more than 15 years. I also serve as Medical Director of the Ralph Lauren Center for Cancer Care (RLCC) in Harlem.

The RLCC is a nonprofit treatment center that was created through a partnership between the Polo Ralph Lauren Foundation and MSK. Our goal is to ensure that traditionally underserved New Yorkers can get state-of-the-art cancer care. As Medical Director, I strive to preserve this core mission while strengthening the connection between both of our organizations. Part of this work is giving community members access to the latest research breakthroughs and clinical trials.
