I have been a practicing physician in the Philadelphia, PA area for over 30 years. I currently practice general pediatrics at both St Chris at Falls Center in Philadelphia's East Falls neighborhood, and at the Center for Children with Special Health Care Needs at St CHristopher's Hospital for Children. Both practice sites provide me with a rich variety of patients and experiences. As a former Neonatologist, I have a special interest in the care of newborns and infants. I have particular expertise in breast feeding and infant nutrition in general. I also understand the magnitude of the nutritional problems that so many children now face and enjoy the opportunity of working with them and their families to help them reach their goals of achieving a healthier life style.
My goals are to make each patient and family feel both comfortable and supported in the health care environment, fostering a relationship of trust and true caring.
I am married and have two grown children. My interests outside of medicine include gardening, reading and my wonderful family!
