About Me


MD, Duke University School of Medicine


Radiation Oncology - Johns Hopkins University

I am a radiation oncologist who cares for people with head and neck cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, and cancer involving the brain and spine. I provide compassionate, personalized, and excellent care for my patients and am proud to be a part of the teams at MSK Bergen, in New Jersey, and MSK’s Manhattan location. I use intensity-modulated radiation therapyimage-guided radiation therapy, and stereotactic radiosurgery. These techniques allow me to deliver safe and effective treatment to all of my patients.   

A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming and frightening. It is my goal to reassure each patient that we will support them and work with them to develop a personalized care plan. I work closely with a multidisciplinary team of experts in medical oncology, surgery, radiology, and pathology. Together, we ensure that we give the highest level of care for each patient. I am also proud to provide patients with access to the innovative and cutting-edge clinical trials that are offered through Memorial Sloan Kettering. 

During initial consultation and subsequent visits with patients, I prioritize understanding each person’s values and goals. I work to ensure that all of my patients understand why we recommend a certain treatment and what to expect during and after radiotherapy. I want each of my patients to feel empowered and confident in their treatment decision. I love being able to provide hope and guidance for my patients and my favorite part of being a radiation oncologist is the wonderful patient-doctor bond that develops. Whether in New York or New Jersey, it is an absolute privilege to offer outstanding cancer care to our local community.

I love being able to provide hope and guidance for my patients and my favorite part of being a radiation oncologist is the wonderful patient-doctor bond that develops.
