Maura N. Dickler, MD

About Me

I am a medical oncologist with more than 20 years of experience treating women with breast cancer. My research has focused on developing new therapeutic approaches for treating estrogen receptor-positive breast cancer, and investigating the impact of these therapies on fertility and sexual health. At MSK, I specifically meet with patients who are seeking second opinions and help guide their treatment plan.

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.
