Physician Assistant

Kathy La, Physician Assistant

I am a physician assistant with more than ten years of experience in critical care and pulmonary medicine. From 2013 to 2018, I worked with doctors at MSK to diagnose and treat many pulmonary diseases associated with people who are immunocompromised by cancer and bone marrow transplants. My experience over the past ten years changed my view of metastatic cancer (cancer that has spread). I joined the Radiation Oncology Department in 2019 to help people with metastatic cancer reduce and alleviate their symptoms using advanced radiation techniques.
