Biography

I am a surgical breast oncologist with a practice dedicated exclusively to the treatment of breast diseases, and I perform all aspects of breast cancer surgery. I see patients both at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center in Manhattan as well as at our regional care facility in Commack, Long Island. At both locations a multidisciplinary team approach is utilized to ensure delivery of the highest quality breast cancer care.
