About Me

As a hospitalist, I care for people who are admitted to Memorial Hospital for medical services. Individuals with cancer often have other chronic illnesses such as COPD or heart failure. My expertise involves treating acute instances of these conditions, as well as issues related to their underlying cancer that require hospitalization. While people are under my care, I work to develop a comprehensive, patient-centered care plan that includes coordination with their primary oncologist.

In addition to my clinical roles, I am interested in the use of technology to improve patient safety and am involved with the supervision and teaching of residents at MSK.

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. Medicare and New York State Medicaid also provide benefits for care at MSK.
