About Me

During college, I became fascinated with the complexity of genetics. I knew I wanted to become a physician and realized that the field of oncology was my calling. Today, I am thrilled by recent advances that have led to cures in cases where there were previously no treatments.

I am a thoracic medical oncologist, which means I treat patients with lung cancer and other cancers in the chest cavity with chemotherapy, targeted therapies and immunotherapies. I started and lead the multidisciplinary lung cancer program as well as its lung cancer screening program at NYU Winthrop Hospital.

When I work with patients, I am committed to achieving the best possible outcomes. I provide my undivided attention to their concerns and thoroughly communicate the disease process to them and their loved ones. My goal is to empower patients to make informed decisions about their care that best align with their goals.

I am proud to have been able to bring several groundbreaking treatment options to my patients through the participation of clinical trials. I am actively involved in studying new versions of immunotherapies and targeted therapies for the treatment of lung cancer. I am also involved in studies designed to detect lung cancer at earlier stages.

I have been recognized for excellence in clinical care by Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors” series and Newsday’s “Top Doctor” series. I have also received the Most Compassionate Doctor award. I regularly present research findings and publish related works in medical journals.
