Dr. Karp, born and raised in New York City, is an honors graduate of Columbia University in NYC where he worked extensively in tumor immunology and neurochemistry research. He then received his medical degree at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in NYC where he was the recipient of two prestigious National Institutes of Health Research Fellowships and also where he received special commendation and honors in the Department of Medicine. Dr. Karp then served his entire residency in radiation oncology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC where his level of outstanding performance resulted in his selection and the rare distinction of serving as an American Cancer Society Fellow in Clinical Oncology.
While at Sloan Kettering, Dr. Karp determined that he would develop his own special, highly personalized, focused cancer center not to merely meet the level of care where he was trained, but to exceed it.
