About

Bio

I am general internist who has practiced in private practice over 30 years. I enjoy taking care of all ages of patients and I have gotten more exposure to geriatrics in the past 10 years. I enjoy especially sports medicine concerns as I remain an active participant running local road races, doing triathalons. I deal with all different type of general internal medicine problems and always welcome a challenge.

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 would really like to thank you. I can't even ask my Doctor questions so I ask my pharmacist and no one else. Again thanks so much. I have been taking them since 2007.
