About Me

What I Do at MSK
  • Assistant Attending Physician
Get To Know Me

I am a board-certified medical oncologist dedicated to caring for people with lung cancer, including non-small cell lung cancer,  small cell lung cancer and mesothelioma.

Finding out that you or a family member has a thoracic cancer can be overwhelming. My team and I will help you understand your diagnosis and find the best path forward. I am devoted to providing the highest level of care throughout my patient’s treatment with the goal of providing a personalized approach to improve outcomes and quality of life.

I care for people with lung cancers (including those patients whose tumors harbor a BRAF alteration) and mesotheliomas (including pleural and peritoneal disease) at the David H. Koch Center for Cancer Care at MSK in Manhattan as well as MSK Westchester in West Harrison, New York. I work together with a comprehensive team of cancer experts from various disciplines to ensure that all of my patients receive individualized and exceptional care.

My research focuses on using laboratory findings to design clinical trials that further the care of my patients. With precision medicine and immunotherapy, people with thoracic cancers, including those with advanced disease, may have several treatment and clinical trial options available. Through my research, and when caring for my patients, I endeavor to analyze available options with a constant eye on evaluating new treatments. I aim to bring the discoveries made by our laboratory researchers to the bedside for the benefit of my patients and beyond. 

My Role at MSK

A thoracic oncologist is a cancer doctor with special training in thoracic (thor-A-sik) cancers. These are cancers that have to do with the chest, including lung, tracheal (windpipe), and thymic (thymus) cancers.
