About

Bio

I am trained as an interventional and general cardiologist and am an Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center who has been in private practice for more than twenty years. I subsequently completed additional Advanced Fellowship training in Anti Aging, Regenerative and Functional Medicine, and have since focused on becoming a health solution designer in preventative health and chronic illness management. My commitment is to contribute to developing cutting edge technology to optimize the body's innate ability to heal as a sustainable principle in the journey towards optimal health and productive longevity.
