About

Bio

I have been in private pediatric practice since 1989, upon completion of my residency in pediatrics at the Bellevue Hospital/New York University Medical Center. I was a Chief Resident in Pediatrics in my last year there. I am Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics, and a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics. I enjoy spending time with my patients and helping them stay well. I practice general pediatric medicine, taking care of families from the first hospital visit after birth right into and almost through college. I have enjoyed watching families grow up and now even take care of some of my previous patients' children. I spend quality time with all my patients and address all concerns surrounding their health.

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.

This was very helpful. Thanks! I'm trying to start a family but I have irregular periods. I've started vitamins. I have an appointment with a fertility doc in December. I feel disheartened..

This was very helpful. Thanks! Sorry, it would be easier if I could add photos. I self-treated with tea tree oil so I am worried the inflammation might have 'disguised' the ringworm
