The Chief will lead a team of surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, oncology certified nurses, social workers, geneticists, and counselors. This multidisciplinary approach ensures we provide the best care and outcome possible while meeting patients’ physical and emotional needs. The distinguished faculty at Lenox Hill Hospital have trained and worked at some of the most prestigious academic institutions in their fields and have achieved regional, national, and international recognition for their work in clinical care, research, and education.

We are a boutique, patient centered program housed within Lenox Hill Hospital. Our clinicians and patients move seamlessly among Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan Eye, Ear & Throat Hospital (MEETH) and our nearby practices, all of which share an electronic medical record.

In the fall of 2025, we are excited to announce our practice will relocate to a new state of the art, 200,000 square foot outpatient facility currently under construction a few short blocks from Lenox Hill Hospital. This Northwell Medical Pavilion, anchored by services from the Northwell Health Cancer Institute, will make world class care more accessible to patients and increase access to specialty care with the incorporation of neuroscience and cardiac care in the facility.
