I am a board-certified medical oncologist, hematologist, and internist, with a focus on women’s health. I treat women with breast and gynecological cancers, as well as other malignancies, and provide my patients with state-of-the-art, compassionate care to help them through this difficult period in their lives.
At Memorial Sloan Kettering’s regional facility in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, my colleagues and I provide care equal to that available at the Center’s main campus in New York, allowing patients to receive the highest quality care close to home. While my main focus is clinical care, I participate in research studies by enrolling patients in clinical trials available at Basking Ridge. I can also facilitate patients’ entry into trials that are available only at the Center’s main campus in Manhattan.
I am an active participant in weekly and biweekly meetings with colleagues on the breast and gynecology services at Memorial Sloan Kettering’s main campus. As a member of a multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons, radiation oncologists, and oncologists, I help develop individualized treatment plans for each patient and provide them with continuity of care.
Cancer and treatment for the disease can both create daily challenges for patients. To help them cope I coordinate comprehensive care with other health care providers, nutritionists, social workers, and physical therapists.
