I grew up in a small rural town in upstate New York surrounded by a large family. I chose Pediatrics because it is what came the most natural for me, as well as the most rewarding. I attended Penn State for my undergraduate work, New York College of medicine in Long Island for medical school, and completed my pediatric residency at the Children's Hospital in Albany Medical Ctr., NY. I worked in Saratoga Springs for six years in a large pediatric practice then moved back to my hometown to practice four years ago in 2010. I have been blessed to have been able to help both large and small communities. I enjoy family gatherings, outdoor sports, basketball, motorcycles and classic cars.
