I am a neuroradiologist with expertise in the imaging of the brain, neck, and spine. My interests lie in the advanced imaging of brain tumors using diffusion tensor, perfusion, spectroscopic and functional MRI. I work closely with the neurosurgeons, neurologists, and radiation oncologists at Memorial Sloan Kettering to bring the most advanced standard and experimental treatments to our patients.

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.Learn more
