Bio

I am a NYC trained Pediatrician that has been practicing Pediatric and Adolescent medicine in south florida for the past 12 years.

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.
