R. Garrett Key, MD

About Me

I am a psychiatrist with expertise in treating psychiatric problems in the context of complicated medical illness, with a specific focus on problems related to cancer and its treatment. I have particular interest in treating both psychiatric and physical symptoms occurring throughout the course of treatment, coping with limitations imposed by illness, and approaching the challenges of survivorship. I am also the psychiatric liaison to Memorial Sloan Kettering’s Lung Cancer Disease Management Team and have special interest in caring for people with lung cancer.
