About

Bio

I have been a Neonatologist and Pediatrician for over 30 years, and simply love playing with babies and children - what better job could a doctor have ? I have been an academic professor of Pediatrics at Loyola University for 9 years, I have been a private Neonatologist and Pediatrician for over 20 years, and in the middle of my career, spent 5 years as a national medical director for the second largest managed care company in the US. I've seen Pediatrics from almost every viewpoint. This is my dream come true, to be able to serve adults and children that need advice, and start solving their problems now ! Find me on Health Tap, lets discuss your clinical problems, answer your questions, and hopefully start you on the road to a healthier life with you or your children.
