Marc Z. Simmons, MD

About Me

I am a board-certified radiologist with fellowship training in body imaging. I have been practicing radiology for more than 25 years and have been with MSK since 2006. I am based at MSK Basking Ridge.

I focus on genitourinary and gastrointestinal radiology. In particular, I use CT, ultrasound, and fluoroscopic imaging. I participate in several multidisciplinary tumor teams, including the Esophageal Disease Management Team.

My responsibilities at MSK Basking Ridge are focused on CT, ultrasound, and plain radiography. I work at MSK’s Manhattan location as well. There, I also interpret fluoroscopic studies and supervise and train residents.

I serve as a co-investigator on approximately 20 clinical trials. We are primarily studying new methods to treat gastroesophageal tumors and lymphoma.

Working at MSK is especially rewarding because I am able to work with dedicated and talented colleagues. I embrace MSK’s goal of providing the best cancer care in all areas of my work, and everyone here is committed to this shared mission. In our collegial environment, I can offer input that directly impacts our patients and their outcomes. I have been at MSK Basking Ridge since the day it opened and I have seen how providing outstanding cancer care has benefited our community.

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.
