    I completed both my medical degree and Internal Medicine training at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and subsequently my Hematology/Oncology fellowship at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School and Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.

    As a member of the multidisciplinary team of physicians who treat hematologic malignancies, I have a unique role in being able to see patients with a diverse spectrum of both benign and malignant hematologic conditions at Rutgers Cancer Institute, Monmouth Medical Center and Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus. This collaboration provides my patients with close to home access to the most advanced, comprehensive care including cutting edge clinical trials and the resources that an NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center can afford including specialized expertise in bone marrow transplantation and CAR-T cell therapy.

    Working closely together, I provide my patients with an individualized treatment plan that best fits their disease and lifestyle.

    Philosophy of Care:

    I am committed to bringing exceptional care to all my patients and strive to provide the most comprehensive and up to date evidence-based care. I believe in close collaboration with other providers and utilizing all available resources to help achieve the most optimum outcomes, all while respecting my patients’ needs and wishes.

    Procedures:

    Bone marrow aspiration and biopsy

    Conditions:

    Hematologic malignancies; Leukemia; Lymphoma; Multiple myeloma; Myeloproliferative disorders; Blood disorders; Benign hematology; Anemia
