Board Certifications

Internal Medicine; Infectious Disease

I am a physician specializing in diagnosing and managing a broad range of infectious diseases. I have a particular interest in HIV infection as well as international health and participate in a travel clinic that is available to our immunocompromised patients who are in need of pre-travel counseling and vaccinations. I mentor fellows during our times together on the inpatient Infectious Disease Service as well as during my weekly continuity clinic.

As Vice Chair for Education in the Department of Medicine, I oversee undergraduate and graduate medical education programs in our department. I directly supervise the medical chief residents and the Department of Medicine’s internal medicine rotation, and in that role I am committed to the education and training of our medical residents so that they are enabled to deliver excellent and compassionate medical care during their time at MSK.

My research presentations and projects with trainees have most recently involved both infectious disease–related interests (HIV and cancer, travel patterns, and health preparations of immunocompromised patients) as well as general medical education topics surrounding communication and optimization of our learning environments.


Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
