About

Bio

I am a Hospitalist in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. A Hospitalist is someone who trains in Internal Medicine and then dedicates their career to caring for patients who are admitted to a Hospital. I studied Neuroscience for my undergraduate work at the University of Pittsburgh. I then obtained a Master's in Physiology as well as my Doctorate of Medicine at Georgetown University. I have been working for 13 years as a dedicated inpatient physician in Pittsburgh, and I am active in teaching medical students, residents, and fellows as part of my position at UPMC
