About

Bio

I was born in Manhattan and raised in Orangeburg, NY. I attended Ithaca College and graduated with a degree in Biology. I received my medical training at The New York College of Podiatric Medicine. I completed a comprehensive surgical residency at NY Hospital, Brooklyn campus. I have three amazing children and am married to a beautiful and intelligent woman. My family is my life and I am lucky enough to be in private practice and make sure that I do not miss the important moments of their lives. I have been blessed with a wonderful life and believe in passing it forward. One of my passions is working with individuals with special needs. I am a Global Clinical Advisor for Special Olympics Internayionsl, and have learned that these athletes have special abilities. I continue to strive to better myself as a clinician and as a member of society. It's been a great ride!
