About

Bio

I have been uniquely positioned throughout my professional life to be associated with and to learn from some of the leading diabetic foot care specialists. It has been my good fortune to be able to use those experiences to become a medical educator, researcher and author, and most importantly, to provide essential services – medical and surgical – to patients with these needs. My education spanned from NYU, as an undergraduate, to Temple University School of Podiatric Medicine for my professional studies. I completed a 3-year residency under the tutelage of Dr. Lawrence Harkless, specializing in Diabetic Foot and Limb Salvage at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, and was named Chief Resident in my final year. From the time of my residency to that of my first practice experience in South Texas, I have been able to concentrate on the care of patients with diabetes and its significant lower extremity complications. In the Lower Rio Grande Valley, the incidence of diabetic complications is often noted to be among the very worst. It was an excellent venue to start my professional life, working in multiple wound care centers. I returned to NYC, to work with noted diabetes and wound healing expert Peter Sheehan, MD, and then joined the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, in the Medical Sciences Division, with a specialty of high-risk diabetic foot/Charcot foot and limb salvage. I hold staff privileges at New York’s Metropolitan Hospital. My attached CV offers the details of my presentations at national conferences, and the chapters I have written on diabetic foot wounds - the latest is in the Wound Care Practices 2nd edition, which was edited by Drs. Paul Sheffield and Caroline Fife. I have also been involved in the publication of numerous wound care articles in wound care publications. Finally, I am an active associate member of ACFAS (American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons) and a fellow of the APWCA (American Professional Wound Care Association). As an aside, I am proud to have earned the Best Clinician Award from the students at NYCPM 4 of the last 5 years. I currently teach podiatric medical students throughout their clinical years, and the NYCPM residents as well.

Multiple factors: Wound care requires multi-discipline input for proper wound healing. There are multiple modalities and multiple strategies to get a wound closed but it takes a knowledgeable well trained specialist to know when to implement the appropriate treatment during the course of wound healing.
