Shaifa Farooqui, PA-C



I am a physician assistant who joined the gastroenterology service at Memorial Sloan Kettering in 2017. I provide consultation services for patients in need of diagnostic/therapeutic endoscopic interventions to evaluate symptoms that are associated with intestinal obstruction, dysphagia, as well as GI complications that occur after bone marrow transplants. I have an interest in enhancing my knowledge in patients who develop GI toxicities related to immunotherapy treatment.  Previously, I worked at NewYork-Presbyterian / Weill Cornell Medical Center on the internal medicine service. I enjoy working closely with an incredible group of physicians to provide comprehensive care to our patients with the goal of improving their quality of life.
