Bio

After 40 years as an actively practicing obstetrician and gynecologist, mostly in New York, I have retired from traditional practice but continue to provide services via telehealth. I am licensed in New York and Texas.

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.
