About Me

I am a radiation oncologist who cares for people with a variety of cancers, specifically gastrointestinal cancers, brain tumors, breast cancer, and prostate cancer. I see more than 300 new patients each year at Memorial Sloan Kettering Westchester in West Harrison, New York.

I am an expert in cutting-edge treatments such as intensity-modulated radiation therapy and image-guided radiation therapy. I am also skilled at stereotactic radiosurgery for brain tumors and hypofractionated therapy for prostate cancer. These two techniques allow us to deliver higher doses of radiation in shorter amounts of time. In addition, I am a researcher and am proud to offer a number of national and MSK clinical trials to patients.

I discovered radiation oncology during my final year of medical school. The field allows me to be part of my patients’ inspiring journeys while also solving complex medical and physics problems.  

I joined the MSK faculty more than a decade ago. I spent eight years at MSK Commack before becoming part of the team that opened MSK Westchester in 2014. What makes our Westchester facility so special is the breadth of services offered and the professional friendships I have made, which ultimately benefit my patients. I take pride in maximizing my relationships with my world-class colleagues to deliver a team approach to care.

My goal for all my patients is to clearly explain their disease and treatment while also making them feel well cared for. 

Outside of work, I love trying new sports, entertaining friends, baking desserts, and most of all spending time with my wonderful family.
