Bio

After graduating from Notre Dame College in Cap-Haitian, I completed my medical school at the State University of Haiti, School of Medicine in Port-au-Prince, then a three-year residency in General Radiology at the General Hospital in Prot-au-Prince, a one year internship in Internal Medicine at New york Medical College/Metropolitan Hospital, a four-year radiology residency training at SUNY Dowstate/ Long Island College Hospital in Brooklyn, NY and finaly a two-years fellowship training in Neuroradiology at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian hospital. I have Board Certifications in Radiology and Neuroradiology. I am curently Assistant Professor of Radiology at CUMC/NYP hospital.

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.
