Chakia J. Faniel

Family Nurse Practitioner

I am a nurse practitioner in Memorial Sloan Kettering’s presurgical service in Middletown, New Jersey. I conduct history and physical assessments for pre-surgical patients and work with our surgical, anesthesia, and medical staff to prepare patients for the operating room. 

I joined MSK in 2008 as an inpatient urology nurse. I enjoyed working with surgical patients and eventually transitioned to our extended recovery program. 

In 2015, I transferred to the Josie Robertson Surgery Center as a perianesthesia nurse, where I continued to take care of patients before and after surgery. Now, I care for patients at MSK Monmouth.
