Radiology; Nuclear Medicine

I am a board-certified radiologist and nuclear medicine physician with specialty training in chest, cardiac, and abdominal imaging, as well as nuclear medicine. My diverse and extensive training helps me provide detailed and thorough analyses of tumors and their various presentations. This aides in primary tumor diagnosis, staging, evaluation of complications, and assessment of treatment response. To do this, I use a variety of imaging techniques, including the most up-to-date approaches.

I have been practicing radiology since 2008 and have worked relentlessly over my career to expand my knowledge of general and oncology imaging. Working at MSK helps me make a difference in the lives of people with cancer. I collaborate with outstanding and dedicated physicians from multiple disciplines to help them understand the extent of disease. This greatly contributes to unparalleled patient care and timely management.
