About

Bio

I am presently retired, but love medicine and am willing to answer questions and provide guidance. My training was in internal medicine and in physiology and the combination worked well for me. While my career was spent primarily in academic administration (served as a sub-dean for admissions, student affairs and ended my stint as dean of the School of Medicine for 9 years), I continually saw patients in general internal medicine. A student of mine asked me to help her in geriatrics when I left the administration, and I worked with pleasure for the past 10 years seeing geriatric and general medical patients.

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.
