About

Bio

I attended Yale College and Yale Medical School and have lived in the New Haven area most of my life. I did my ENT training at Yale as well prompting one of my son's friends to comment "you are so Blue, you could be a Smurf." (Yale's colors are Blue and white). I have 3 children and have been happily married for nearly 30 years. When not doctoring I enjoy good fine, good TV and movies,golf and singing. I have been in several amateur productions including Guys and Dolls and A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.
