I am a hospitalist who cares for people who have been admitted to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. I work primarily overnight, admitting patients who come in for both medical complications of cancer and other medical conditions, such as complications of chemotherapy, infections, pain, cardiac conditions, and organ failure. As the primary caregiver for patients overnight, I work to provide patient-centered care and am a strong advocate for the needs of the people I care for.
I also find medical education incredibly rewarding and value the teaching relationship between myself and residents and advanced practice practitioners. We work together overnight to stabilize and care for patients who have already been admitted.
In addition, I am interested in utilizing quality improvement and patient safety projects to better improve the hospital experience for our patients and to provide high-value care.
In my spare time, I like to bake, hike, and spend time with my family, friends, and dog.
Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering work as teams, with specialists from all different areas. This allows us to consider all your needs together, and to give you the best possible care.
