About

Bio

Born in Montreal, Canada I attended McGill University Medical school where I also did my general surgery residency. After completing that training I went to Albany Medical Center for Thoracic surgery residency. I finally did a 2 year fellowship with Dr. Tirone David and his staff at Toronto General Hospital. I am a board certified cardiothoracic surgeon specializing in valve repairs and VATS surgery for lung cancer. I was a contributing on air TV Medical Expert for a local CBS news affiliate and am seriously interested in medical telejournalism.

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.
