About Me

I am a medical oncologist who specializes in the care of patients affected by breast carcinoma. My research focuses on developing new approaches to improve the outcome of women with this disease, with particular regard to bone health. I am collaborating with clinicians and scientists to develop novel strategies to assess the impact that different therapeutics may have on bone density, and to prevent and treat bone loss.

Most major health insurers offer plans that include MSK as one of their in-network providers. If MSK is in-network, it means all our doctors are too. Medicaid and New York State Medicare also provide benefits for care at MSK.
