About Me

I have been at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey since 2007. With a focus on pediatric hematology/oncology I completed my residency and a fellowship at Schneider Children's Hospital of Long Island Jewish Medical Center. I am Board Certified in Pediatrics, Pediatric Hematology/Oncology and Hospice and Palliative Medicine.

While I have a clinical focus on pediatric cancers, I also evaluate patients with blood disorders. Along with assistance from the multidisciplinary teams within the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Programs, I help educate patients and families on their treatment options so that they can make an informed decision. 

I am an Associate member of the Children’s Oncology Group, elected member of the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Network of New Jersey, an elected member of the American Society of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology, an elected member of the American Society of Hematology and a member of the Hemophilia Research Society and serve as a member of the New Jersey Regional Hemophilia Program Advisory Board.

Clinical Expertise

Pediatric cancers, blood disorders including thrombosis and hemophilia, and pediatric palliative care.
