About

Bio

I am a general pediatrician with interests including infectious diseases in children, newborn care, the promotion of breastfeeding and the care of childhood asthma. I serve as Senior VIce President of a hospital on Long Island and help lead efforts regionally to reduce medical errors and promote humanism in healthcare. I write a blog "Second Opinion" at http://www.pediatrichealthcare.blogspot.com, and have published in the area of patient safety and professionalism. I enjoy literature and making classical music with my wife Kathrynne.

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.
