About

Bio

I am a full time practicing pediatrician at Princeton Nassau Pediatrics as well as the chairman of the department of pediatrics at the University Medical Center of Princeton. I have learned much from my patients in both settings; it has been a very rewarding and humbling experience. I hope to be able to pass on some of the information that I've learned from my patients to those who are looking for guidance. I am also a father of a 6 year old boy and a 4 year old girl and the husband of a pediatric nurse. Those roles have been the most fulfilling and at times, the most educational. I am also a die-hard Yankee fan.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Time and pain meds: Cold sores are caused by viruses. The good news is that they will go away on their own. The bad news...There's not much that you can do to expedite it. For the most part, if the cold sores are painful, you can give your child pain meds (tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen). Always check with you pediatrician if you don't know the dose or if you are not sure if that medicine is appropriate.

Yes: Breast milk is the gold standard of infant nutrition and it is our responsibility as physicians to both promote and support healthy breastfeeding. There are many times, however, where it is not only okay to use formula, but preferred. Talk to your pediatrician if you have concerns about how your infant is feeding.

Many causes: Vomiting is a common symptom in children when they are sick. Some viruses (typically called stomach viruses), can cause symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. Sometimes vomiting occurs after coughing fits or after swallowing mucous. Vomiting is not usually concerning, as long as the child remains well hydrated, is acting normally and the vomiting is not bloody or bile-colored (green).
