About

Bio

I received my training at Harvard Medical School, University of Pennsylvania, University of Rochester, and Duke University. I am the Medical Imaging Director for Fortune 500 companies such as Microsoft, Disney, Sprint, Toyota, BMW, United Airlines, SAB Miller, and BP Oil. If you believe you may have been misdiagnosed on a radiology report -- X-ray, ultrasound, CAT scan, MRI, or PET -- I encourage you to contact me for a second opinion and a non-jargon explanation of your imaging study. I also provide virtual consultations for minor musculoskeletal injury sprain/strains, as well as Adolescent Health, and Men's Health issues including impotence/virility, male pattern baldness, and prevention of male sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV. I am licensed to practice medicine in 40 states.
