About

Bio

I was trained at Harvard and Medical school at Johns hopkins. I spent many years working in developing countries and am now in Private practice in Florida after four years at the University of Miami as Director of Executive Medicine and International Health. I am thrilled to be back in private practice spending time with patients and their families.

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.
