I am a specialist for children and young adults who have problems of the ears, nose, throat, head and neck and communication disorders. I am a former Professor of Otolaryngology and Pediatrics at the University at Buffalo and headed the program at the Children's Hospital of Buffalo for 20 years. I was born in Brooklyn, raised on Long Island, and went to school in Phillie and trained in "the city." We have 3 grown children and my husband is a pediatric urologist. I love what I do and I love advocating for kids and their families (and for women physicians).
