About Me

I am a primary-care physician in Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center’s Adult Long-Term Follow-Up Program. This program provides follow-up care for adults of all ages who had cancer during their childhood, adolescent, or young-adult years. I also serve as a site director for interns rotating through the program.

We offer one of the country’s leading programs committed to the unique care of the cancer survivor. Our team, which includes physicians, nurse practitioners, a social worker, and a clinical psychologist, works collaboratively with other specialty physicians with expertise and interest in survivorship issues.

My background in both internal medicine and pediatrics has allowed me exposure to cancer care across the disease and age spectrum. This has led to a particular interest in adolescent and young-adult survivors, a population that faces special challenges as they acquire the skills needed to navigate adulthood. I am particularly interested in their psychosocial well-being and integration as well as the unique sexual and reproductive health concerns they have. My research includes better understanding issues of fertility in this population.

As a med/peds physician I truly believe life is a voyage and I can help patients by enabling them along the way. I enjoy being a part of every person’s care team.

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.
