About

Bio

I practice sleep medicine in Clearwater, FL. I completed Internal Medicine residency and became board certified. I also completed fellowships in Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine. I am boarded in all three specialties. I enjoy practice and home life. I love educating colleagues and the community about sleep.

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.
