About Me

I decided to pursue a career in medicine because I’ve always wanted to have a positive impact on the world and be of service. I love working with people and learning from them. As a physician, I take pride in being able to provide my patients and their families with advanced treatments and compassionate care that respects their individual perspectives.

During medical school, I fell in love with pediatrics because caring for infants, children, and young adults was such a stimulating experience. As a resident, I worked with several patients who were diagnosed with leukemia and other cancers. I was struck by the seamless integration of supportive care into patients’ medical care, and so I chose to become a pediatric hematologist-oncologist.

I primarily treat children who have cancers of the bone, soft tissue tumors, or blood disorders. At the Stephen D. Hassenfeld Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, part of Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, we are highly active in research, which allows us to provide children with the most modern and innovative treatments. Knowing that I can care for my patients using the best available treatments is essential.

I was drawn to medicine because I wanted to work with people, so when I work with a child and his or her family, my attention is on the whole family. Through our Sala Institute for Child and Family Centered Care, we provide children and their families with psychosocial support of unparalleled quality. Our child life specialists provide art therapy and music therapy, and our social workers and psychologists offer counseling and support. We aim to improve the quality of life for our patients and their families by prioritizing family-centered support.

I participate in clinical trials exploring new therapies for Ewing sarcoma. I am a fellow of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Society of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, and the International Society of Paediatric Oncology (SIOP). In 2001, I was recognized by SIOP for the “best presentation” at the annual conference. I have also been recognized by Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors” series for the New York Metro Area.

Every day at my job, I can’t help but smile. I am grateful for the opportunity to treat infants, children, and adolescents. Almost every day I hear back from someone I treated years ago—some have gone on to become doctors and nurses, and many are now happy parents to their own children. There is nothing better than seeing my former patients grow and thrive.
