About Me

I am a radiologist and Director of Breast Imaging at MSK Monmouth. I have extensive expertise in all areas of radiology, especially breast and body imaging. I use a variety of imaging techniques to achieve the best cancer care for my patients. I am experienced in performing minimally invasive, image-guided procedures of the breast, kidney, pancreas, liver, thyroid, and lymph nodes. These procedures can help patients avoid surgery to diagnose or manage their cancer.

Breast cancer screening, diagnosis, and intervention are my clinical and research cornerstones. I take great care in coordinating and interpreting mammograms, breast ultrasounds, and breast MRIs. I also provide second opinion reviews of imaging from outside institutions. In addition, I perform breast interventional procedures, including stereotactic breast biopsies, and image-guided breast biopsies using breast MRI or ultrasound.

I see patients at MSK’s Manhattan location as well as at MSK Monmouth in New Jersey. I am proud to work alongside my distinguished colleagues and am overjoyed to be involved in extending MSK’s expert and compassionate care to the residents of New Jersey and surrounding areas.

In addition to my clinical and research responsibilities at MSK, I am active in healthcare leadership, policy, and advocacy at local and national levels. Although I see many patients every year, being involved in advocacy allows me to reach and serve many more in a wider community.

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.
