About

Bio

I graduated from Brown University school of Medicine and subsequently completed the Family Medicine Residency training at Christiana Care Health Services in Delaware. Immediately following the training completion, I joined a private practice as a lead-physician in Freehold, NJ, for nearly 7 years. I then joined Inspira Medical Group, formerly Underwood-Memorial Hospital, and have been enjoying my work here for over a decade. I currently serve as a Medical Director for my group, overseeing other 11 offices, as well as an assistant director/faculty for the Family Medicine Residency/Med schools. Along with a busy practice, I serve as the chairman for our Quality Committee and Governance Committee, among few other responsibilities..so you could say that I am a busy guy...but loving my job!!!

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.
