SUSAN DROSSMAN, MD
Dr. Susan R. Drossman is a breast radiologist in private practice in New York City, specializing in imaging guided biopsies. She graduated magna cum laude from The University of Pennsylvania in 1984 with a B.S. in Biological Basis of Behavior and received her M.D. with Honors from the Mount Sinai Medical School in 1988. Dr. Drossman did her internship at NYU/Bellevue Medical Center, her radiology residency at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital, and a fellowship in breast imaging at Memorial Sloan Kettering. She served as the Director of Breast Imaging at Mount Sinai Medical Center from 1994-1999 and started their Interventional Breast Imaging program. She joined Schaffer, Schonholz & Drossman LLP, a women’s imaging private practice in New York City, in 1999. Dr. Drossman is also a member of the faculty of the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, where she has served for more than 20 years. She often describes her job as a hybrid between a breast surgeon and a radiologist, performing breast biopsies using imaging guidance. She has lectured all over the United States about the benefits of early detection using mammography and ultrasound, and co-authored a textbook on correlating pathology and breast imaging in evaluating breast core biopsy specimens. She has appeared on numerous news and talk shows, including The Today Show, The CBS Evening News, Fox News’ Good Day New York and The Meredith Vieira Show, as an expert in breast imaging. Dr. Drossman lives in New York City with her husband, Adam Sokoloff, an investment banker, and their three children.
