Keith A. Meritz, M.D., has been a practicing Radiation Oncologist for 35 years, with experience in all clinical aspects of radiation, and currently, his subspecialties are Central Nervous System Tumors and Head and Neck malignancies. Dr. Meritz managed several patients on In-House protocols while at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, particularly Cervical Cancer, and entered patients onto RTOG protocols while at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and while at Northshore LIJ. He enjoys being part of a multidisciplinary team with a collegial atmosphere, incorporating the most current evidence-based care in patient management. Dr. Meritz philosophy is that he am here to inform and care for his patients and their families as they grapple with making tough choices, allay fears of the unknown and guide them throughout the challenging process of dealing with their diagnosis. As a new part of the team at Westchester Medical Center, Dr. Meritz hopes to assist the chairman and medical team in advancing new and innovative treatment options.
