About Me

I am a board-certified dermatologist who cares for people with skin lymphomas, including cutaneous T- and B-cell lymphomas. I am part of a multidisciplinary group that includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and nurses who work together to provide comprehensive care to our patients.

In addition to skin lymphomas, I see patients who are experiencing skin, hair, and nail side effects from cancer treatment. I provide care in the outpatient setting, as well as to people admitted to the hospital who require dermatologic evaluation. In this role, I work closely with medical and radiation oncologists to treat skin-related concerns and help patients better tolerate their treatments. When evaluating and managing my patients’ cutaneous side effects, I am deeply committed to understanding their perspectives and providing the best treatment experience possible.

Our understanding of cutaneous lymphomas is continuing to expand. I am involved in clinical research studies to identify new topical and systemic therapies to better target and treat these diseases and improve patient well-being. I am particularly interested in addressing symptoms such as pain and itching, which can have a significant negative impact on quality of life.

Being diagnosed with skin cancer or skin lymphoma can be confusing and overwhelming. My primary goal during initial visits with my patients and their families is to help them have a clear understanding of the diagnosis. We also work together to come up with an individualized management plan that integrates their values, priorities, and goals for treatment.

Insurance

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.
