I am a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in treating patients with lung cancer and cancers of the head and neck.
I care for patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s regional facility in Sleepy Hollow, New York. Here at Sleepy Hollow, we offer state-of-the-art, comprehensive, and compassionate cancer care for patients at a location close to their homes. In addition, for patients who wish to receive their care close to home, we can collaborate with our community physicians and healthcare teams to provide some of these supportive and non-cancer services locally. Most patients treated at Sleepy Hollow can receive all of their medical oncology care here if they desire, but they also have access to the resources of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s main campus in Manhattan if needed.
I trained at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and held senior leadership positions in cancer centers at Emory University in Atlanta and at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in New York. Currently, in addition to my work at Memorial Sloan Kettering Sleepy Hollow, I also serve as Medical Director of the Westchester Medical Center Advanced Oncology and Infusion Service, a partnership with Memorial Sloan Kettering. I am also a Professor of Medicine at New York Medical College.
