About

Bio

Eldest of six sons. Worked my way through college and medical school. Spent two years in the Army and four years in the Army reserves before becoming a physician. Was honorably discharged as First Lt. MSC. Was named Doctor of the Year in NJ by The New Jersey Association of Osteopathic Physicians & Surgeons, and I was Chief of Staff and Chairman of Dept of Family Medicine at my local hospital. For many years I was a Medical Examiner for the FAA.

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.
