About

Bio

Enter your bio... Trained as Endocrinologist at the Mount Sinai Medical Center, and found my subspecialty to be of major interest a time when little was known about Polycystic Ovary Syndrome. I was glad to be the first to write a textbook on this in 1984, called "Polycystic Ovarian Disease". I am seeing thyroid, calcium, adrenal, obesity, hairloss and other entities The joy of rendering at least some advice on this excellent website pleases me and feel I also contribute to many others.Thanks

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.
