Dr. Adrienne Phillips
As a third generation physician, Adrienne A. Phillips is following in her family’s footsteps to provide compassionate and comprehensive care for patients with all types of cancer and nonmalignant blood disease, with a special interest in blood cancers (lymphoma and leukemia).
Dr. Phillips graduated from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in human biology and Latin American studies and a medical degree with honors. She holds a master’s of public health degree from Harvard University. She then came to New York City where she received both her internal medicine training and her fellowship in Hematology/Oncology at New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia University Medical Center.
Dr. Phillips has a particular interest in cancer disparities and outcomes among under-served populations, including Caribbean-Americans. She has developed a large database of a rare blood cancer called Adult T-cell Leukemia/Lymphoma, a disease disproportionately seen among Caribbean and Latin-American emigrants. She is the principal investigator of several clinical trials that explore novel therapies for this disease. Her research has been presented at national and international conferences and she has co-authored numerous publications. She has also served as an oncology consultant in Africa and the Caribbean and has a number of international collaborations to address cancer management strategies for developing nations.
In recognition of her achievements, she is the recipient of numerous awards including the American Society of Hematology’s prestigious Harold Amos Medical Faculty Career Development Award, The Network Journal’s “40 Under 40” Achievement Award, and she has appeared on The Dr. Oz Show.
