At Memorial Sloan Kettering’s regional facility in Basking Ridge, New Jersey, my colleagues and I provide care equal to that available at MSK’s location in New York City, 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 at MSK Basking Ridge and facilitate patients’ entry into trials that are available only at MSK’s Manhattan location.
I am an active participant in weekly and biweekly meetings with colleagues on the breast and gynecology services at our Manhattan facility. As a member of a multidisciplinary team that includes surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists, I develop individualized treatment plans for each patient and provide them with continuity of care.
Both cancer and its treatment can create daily challenges for patients. To help them cope, I coordinate comprehensive care with nutritionists, social workers, physical therapists, and other healthcare providers.
