About Me

As an interventional radiologist, I perform minimally invasive image-guided procedures using x-ray, CT scan, ultrasound, PET scan, and MRI technologies. These procedures include percutaneous biopsy, venous access (such as mediport placement), arterial embolization, and thermal ablation. As a doctor at Memorial Sloan Kettering, my primary responsibility is to provide excellent, safe, and compassionate care for my patients who are living with cancer, or who may be facing a cancer diagnosis.

My clinical interests include inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement and removal, and interventional management of pelvic vein compression and leg swelling in people with cancer (including catheter-directed treatment of deep venous thrombosis). I am currently a site principal investigator of a national multicenter study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of IVC filters (PRESERVE Trial). 

Originally from Far Hills, New Jersey, I graduated magna cum laude from Duke University in 1998 with a BS degree in biology.  I attended Jefferson Medical College, and graduated as a member of the AOA Honor Medical Society in 2002.  I completed residency in diagnostic radiology  in 2009 at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City,  followed by a clinical fellowship in vascular and interventional radiology.

I am a board certified radiologist with subspecialty certification (CAQ) in vascular and interventional radiology from the American Board of Radiology.

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.
