I am a board-certified internist and medical oncologist who specializes in the care of patients with breast cancer. I practice at Memorial Sloan Kettering Commack, on Long Island, and am an active member of MSK’s Breast Cancer Disease Management Team, with whom I meet regularly to discuss treatment advances and patient care.
My goal is to provide patients with the highest-quality medical care using both standard and investigational treatments. I participate in many of the clinical trials offered by the Breast Cancer Medicine Service aimed at improving patients’ outcomes, and I can enroll patients in studies in Commack or facilitate their entry into studies open only at MSK’s Manhattan location.
At MSK Commack, my colleagues and I collaborate closely to provide optimal care for breast cancer patients. Members of our multidisciplinary team include a surgeon, medical and radiation oncologists, oncology nurses, a social worker, a nutritionist, and lymphedema therapists.
I am also Chief of Medical Oncology in Commack, where we focus on ensuring that patients with all types of tumors receive the most advanced oncology care available anywhere.
