About

Bio

I am a medical school graduate of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. I did my ophthalmology residency at Vanderbilt University. I had a year of special training just in LASIK. I currently practice ophthalmology in Northeast New Jersey. I have a wonderful wife and 3 beautiful children. I also like to sing and spend lots of time playing with my children!

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.

A 21-year-old male asked:

Red sore throat: These symptoms could be the sign of an infection, allergies, or rarely sometimes more serious problems. Since it's not getting better, you should go and see your doctor to help find out what's going on and how to treat it. If there are any breathing problems you should call right away.
A 29-year-old female asked:

Ophthalmology 25 years experience
Chronic cough: Drinking cough syrup long term is not healthy. More concerning is your cough, which is not getting better after 1 month. You should make an appointment to see your primary care doctor soon. Your testing should include a chest X-ray.
A female asked:

Ophthalmology 25 years experience
Light sensitivity: Call your pediatrician and ask for an immediate referral to a pediatric ophthalmologist, not a general ophthalmologist. Your baby could have some serious inflammation or an infection.
