Dr. Levy is an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and an attending physician at Continuum Cancer Centers of New York. He specializes in all areas of thoracic oncology, including non-small cell lung cancer, small cell lung cancer and thymic malignancies.
Dr. Levy earned his medical degree at the Medical College of Georgia in 1998. He went on to complete an internal medicine residency at Georgetown University Hospital and subsequently a hematology/oncology fellowship at New York-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. While at Weill Cornell, Dr. Levy received both the Department of Medicine Research Fellow of the Year Award and the 2009 American Society of Clinical Oncology Young Investigator Award for his clinical research in prostate cancer.
My current interest is the comprehensive clinical care and research development for patients with thoracic malignancies, with particular emphasis on non small cell lung cancer. Working closely with thoracic surgeons, pulmonologists, and radiation oncologists my goal is to establish clinical trials focusing on newer therapies for both locally advanced and advanced staged lung cancer. As patients are now living longer and developing lung cancer at a later age, I believe that there should be particular attention devoted to targeted, less toxic treatments in attempts to improve survival and limit side effects.
