About Me

My career in medicine was not originally a choice—I rebelled when my mother made that decision for me. However, my rebellion was short lived because mother did know best. Medicine combined my love for science with my interest in improving the human condition. Oncology and hematology were a natural progression for me and the subspecialty of breast oncology called to me as a woman. Every day brings new experiences that keep my scientific interest alive and provide me the chance to make a difference in people’s lives.

I am a board-certified hematologist and oncologist, but my practice largely consists of patients with varying stages of breast cancer. I also see and counsel women with benign but high-risk breast disease, regarding options to lower their risk.

I never assume I know everything about an individual just because I am qualified to treat his or her cancer. Every patient has a unique condition and it is my responsibility to identify the nuances and deliver the best possible care. It takes a highly qualified team that works closely together to deliver the right treatment to each patient. My team knows that treatment exceeds the delivery of medication, and that the impact of a cancer diagnosis can last a lifetime.

As the medical director of the Breast Program at NYU Winthrop Hospital, I am involved in the creation and implementation of programs that can help at every stage of a patient’s breast cancer journey—from diagnosis to survivorship.
