Bio

Solo Internist in suburban Baltimore. I specialize in addiction medicine--I have been treating patients with Suboxone out of my office since 2003. During this time, I have treated well over 1000 patients with Suboxone. I am also the medical director of a methadone clinic and I am the former medical director of addiction services at the Harford County Health Department.

Specialties
