About

Bio

I'm a board certified pediatrician, I have a solo private pediatric practice for almost 34 years in Jersey City, N.J. I love children & enjoy working with & taking care of them, they are a gift from God & they bring me joy. I love to help people, that gives me great content. I have experience in immunization, lead poisoning prevention & general pediatric conditions. Some of the patients whom I cared for since the beginning of my practice refuse to move on to an adult physician & a lot of them are bringing their own children to me. I'm glad to join Health Tap since 04/16/2015 to allow me to help more people & I'm looking forward to get to know other members Heath Tap & share in knowledge, experience & offering help to people all over the world. Thanks for having me.
