He welcomes new patients to his Englewood practice.
“As a doctor, I am deeply committed to humanistic care and to providing optimal choices for medical and surgical care to women who have cancer,” says Dr. Nagarsheth. “Based on scientific evidence, the latest surgical techniques, and an understanding of the patient’s quality-of-life priorities, I customize a treatment plan together with each patient, to ensure that she receives the most appropriate treatment.”
“At the Lefcourt Family Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center at Englewood Health,” says Dr. Nagarsheth, “we take a multidisciplinary approach to cancer. That’s why I’m thrilled to join the Englewood Health Physician Network, where my patients have access to an integrated team of specialists who share an electronic medical record system, which helps us to collaborate more fluidly, providing more coordinated and streamlined care.”
“We are very excited to welcome Dr. Nagarsheth to our team of renowned specialists and providers. Dr. Nagarsheth’s expertise in gynecologic oncology will help meet an important need in our community,” said Dr. Stephen Brunnquell, president of the Englewood Health Physician Network. “As our network continues to grow, we remain focused on ensuring that our patients have access to leading care right here, in their own backyard.”
Board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and in gynecology oncology, Dr. Nagarsheth received his MD from Mount Sinai School of Medicine (now Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai), in Manhattan. He did an obstetrics and gynecology residency at Duke University Medical Center, followed by a Galloway Fellowship in gynecologic oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. He then did a gynecologic oncology fellowship at Mount Sinai Medical Center and a research fellowship at NYU Langone Medical Center.
Dr. Nagarsheth is a clinical professor of gynecologic oncology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. He is a co-author on numerous research papers published in peer-reviewed journals, author of the book Music and Cancer: A Prescription for Healing, and a recipient of the Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism in Medicine Award.
He is also a percussionist in the rock band N.E.D. (No Evidence of Disease), a group of five gynecologic oncology surgeons from across the U.S. taking healing and the arts to a new level: writing, performing, and recording original music to raise awareness and funds for women’s cancers. Dr. Nagarsheth accepted the Foundation for Women’s Cancer 2018 Public Service Award on behalf of the band, which was selected for its “commitment to bringing attention to gynecologic cancers and raising funds for ovarian, endometrial, cervical, vulvar, and vaginal cancer awareness.”
