About

Bio

Highly trained and experienced specialist in allergy, asthma, sinus and respiratory disease. Relates well to patients; down to earth, approachable, easy to understand, compassionate and caring. Teaching staff at Hopkins but prefers caring for patients over research and academics. At ease with all ages, young children (married, has 2 of his own) and seniors. Sees HealthTap as a way to be more available to many devoted patients an hour away.

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.
