About Me

I primarily chose a career in medicine because it is a concrete way to help people in need. Prior to choosing hematology and oncology, I wanted to work for the nonprofit organization Doctors Without Borders. I chose my current specialty because I was fascinated with the technology that allows me to correlate what is happening microscopically to what is happening in real time with a patient’s illness. This ability to connect the patient’s symptoms to their pathophysiological processes is the key to understanding diseases better.

I specialize in treating people who have gastrointestinal cancers, melanoma, and sarcomas. At our melanoma program at NYU Winthrop Hospital, I work along with surgical oncologists and dermatologists. In our vibrant and holistic program, we treat patients by meeting all of their needs.

My team and I treat each person as a unique individual and not a data point in the system. All our patients receive multidisciplinary care that includes radiation oncology, surgical oncology, pathology, and radiology services. The unique aspect of our care is due in great part to the professional collegiality of our medical team, and our patients benefit greatly from these interactions.

I individualize treatment plans while delivering the best therapeutics that science has to offer. As a medical oncologist, part of my job is to give my patients hope.

In addition to my clinical work, I participate in clinical trials. I am also a member of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
