About Me

As a board-certified anesthesiologist and critical care medicine physician, I provide anesthesia to people having surgery at Memorial Hospital, Memorial Sloan Kettering’s inpatient facility. I also care for people in our intensive care unit (ICU) who have life-threatening illnesses.

My area of expertise is in caring for people with various cancers of the chest and abdominal cavity. In collaboration with a team of experts from many different areas, I aim to provide the best healthcare to patients in the operating room and in the ICU, and support them during their most vulnerable moments. In addition to my clinical responsibilities, I also have interests in clinical outcomes research and educating our medical students, residents, and fellows.

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. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
