About

Bio

I am a board-certified pediatrician with over 20 years experience in private practice and hospital settings. Pediatrics is my passion! I specialize in the treatment of children from their first day of life until their twenty first birthday. My areas of special interest include first-time parents, issues with newborns and toddlers, children with special needs, and adolescents. I welcome any and all questions/issues/concerns you may have regarding your child. When I am not practicing telemedicine, you can find me teaching medical students at the Hoftstra University School of Medicine here in New York. In my spare time, I enjoy knitting, organic gardening and embarrassing my teenage daughters. I look forward to connecting with you!

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.
