Kaushal Parikh, MBBS, specializes in the treatment of patients with thoracic cancers, such as lung cancer, thymoma, and mesothelioma. He joined John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in 2019. Always putting the patient first, Dr. Parikh presents all treatment options and works with the patient to come up with a plan of care together, as a team. He is very considerate of his patients’ interests and aspirations—with the ultimate goal of helping them not only to live longer, but to live better, healthier lives. He is also passionate about research and is involved in drug development and early-phase clinical trials, particularly through John Theurer Cancer Center’s robust Phase I clinical trials program. He and his colleagues are working to expand the translational research program so that more findings from the laboratory can be translated to the clinic to help patients. Dr. Parikh received his medical degree from Topiwala National Medical College in Mumbai, India. He completed his Internal Medicine residency and Hematology/Oncology fellowship at New York Medical College, where he was Chief Hematology and Oncology Fellow for his final year.
