I am a board-certified medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with gastrointestinal cancers. These include esophageal cancerstomach cancercolorectal cancer, hepatobiliary cancer, and pancreatic cancer. I see patients at Memorial Sloan Kettering Bergen. I feel privileged to provide state-of-the-art care to our patients close to home in Northern New Jersey.

As a member of MSK’s Gastrointestinal Oncology Service, I am part of a team of experts from different areas. My colleagues include medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, psychiatrists, oncology nurses, social workers, and dieticians. Together, we provide our patients comprehensive, high-quality care. We also offer access to many cancer clinical trials at MSK Bergen and help patients enroll in studies based at MSK in Manhattan. 

My research has focused on developing new therapies for gastrointestinal cancers. These include targeted chemotherapy for cholangiocarcinoma and immunotherapy for hepatocarcinoma. I am also interested in using personalized medicine, such as molecular profiling, to develop treatment strategies that are best suited to attack an individual’s cancer.

After I meet with patients, it’s my goal that they leave my office with a sense of trust. I want them to know that they are in good hands and our entire team of experts will support them throughout their experience at MSK. 

When I’m not working, I enjoy photography, sports, and music.
