About

Bio

I graduated in 1985 from Oberlin College with a BA in chemistry. I then enjoyed studying at the Ohio State University College of Medicine and received my M.D. in 1989. I underwent residency training in Ob/Gyn at Lenox Hill hospital in New York City from 1989 until 1993. I have been busy practicing Ob/Gyn in private practice in New York City since 1993 and have also been practicing ambulatory gyn procedures at a clinic in the south Bronx since 2004.

Specialties
