Hello, I'm Dr. Louis Voigt. I specialize in critical care medicine. I lead a team of physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, and former patients and their families who make up MSK's ethics committee.

During the course of treatment, the patient, caregiver, or health care provider can find themselves faced with an ethical dilemma. These concerns often involve making a decision when there is uncertainty or conflict. Our team is available to help you explore the tough issues surrounding a decision about care and help guide you towards a resolution.

In this section of our website, you can learn more about the services we provide, including examples of when you should consider an ethics consultation and how we can help.

We know this can be an overwhelming and an uncertain time. Please know that we are here to support you in any way that we can.
