Medical Oncology; Internal Medicine

I am a medical oncologist who specializes in caring for people with prostate cancer and other genitourinary cancers.

I make every effort to help my patients balance their quality of life with the potential side effects of treatment. I am part of a multidisciplinary group of cancer specialists. Along with colleagues in surgery, radiation oncology, radiology, and palliative care, I aim to offer my patients the individualized care plan that’s best for them.

I am also part of a large research effort at MSK that is focused on understanding the biology of prostate cancer. We are working to bring new therapies to people through clinical trials. As a member of the Early Drug Development Service, I conduct early clinical trials using new drugs that are targeted to specific biological processes across different types of cancer.


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.
