Rachael A. Lerner

I specialize in caring for people with breast cancer as a nurse practitioner in breast surgery. As such, I work closely with doctors, other nurse practitioners, nurses, and support staff to care for patients in our service.

I have practiced in the outpatient setting as a nurse practitioner since receiving my national board certification. I am a member of the Oncology Nursing Society and member and former advocacy and policy chair of Nurse Practitioners of New York.

I work closely with surgeons Kimberly Van Zee and George Plitas. We combine our expertise to provide comprehensive care to our patients at every step of their cancer journey.
