Personal Statement

I have expertise in stem cell / bone marrow transplantation, with over 25 years of experience in this field.  I am the Associate Director of the Blood and Bone Marrow Transplant Program of New York Presbyterian Hospital - Cornell.  and the Service Chief of the inpatient BMT clinical service. I have major interests in improving the overall safety and effectiveness of transplantation. I also have significant experience in the management of hematological malignancies such as leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma, myelodysplasia, as well as aplastic anemia.  I enjoy teaching residents and fellows management of patients undergoing transplantation and I  have published articles in this field. I also review articles for medical journals relating to stem cell transplantation.I am involved in multiple research trials related to BMT, both as a principal and co investigator and I have represented  NYP Weill Cornell at the Cancer Alliance Clinical Trials Group, the Myeloproliferative  Disease Research group, and the BMT  Clinical Trials Network. However, my main love is caring for patients; I enjoy meeting them, guiding them through the transplant process, and having a true doctor  patient relationship. I am committed to providing the best possible, state of the art care for my patients, with clear explanations and ongoing personal support through difficult situations.
