Internal Medicine

As a hospitalist at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, I care for patients who have been admitted to the hospital for acute medical complications. I am an expert in treating and coordinating the care of people requiring inpatient medical treatment for issues like infections, organ failure, pain, and other chronic conditions. I am part of the inpatient medical teams who care for people with genitourinary (kidney, bladder, prostate, testicular) or thoracic (mainly lung) cancers.

I focus on providing my patients with compassionate, comprehensive, patient-centered care, which includes coordinating with their primary oncologist. In addition, I also maintain an active role in the training of young physicians, and the continuous improvement in the safety of our patients.
