About Me

I am a neuro-oncologist who specializes in the care of patients with brain tumors and the neurologic complications of cancer. I work alongside a multidisciplinary team of neurosurgeons, radiation oncologists, nurses, and research staff to achieve the highest quality of care in the treatment of primary brain tumors (including gliomas, glioblastomas, ependymomas, and meningiomas) and primary central nervous system lymphoma, as well as brain metastases.

With the support of my colleagues at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Brain Tumor Center, I am also involved in several clinical trials in an effort to develop novel approaches to treating patients with newly diagnosed and recurrent brain tumors.

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.
