I wanted to be a doctor from as early as elementary school because of my interest in science and my passion for helping people with a hands-on approach. My enthusiasm for a career in medicine grew through my work as a lifeguard, emergency medical technician, and surgical volunteer.

I became a gastroenterologist because the specialty addresses a breadth of conditions and allows me to perform diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. I also forge long-term relationships with patients. Every day at work is stimulating.

As a gastroenterologist, I see people who have conditions affecting the digestive system, including the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, pancreas, and liver. I offer colorectal cancer screening and other preventive care and evaluate acute symptoms like abdominal pain and blood in stool. In addition, I manage chronic conditions such as gastritis and irritable bowel syndrome. Patients I see include those who have fatty liver disease or hepatitis B or C, and those who need an evaluation for abnormal liver test results.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve the community of South Brooklyn, where I grew up. I perform upper endoscopies, colonoscopies, and video capsule endoscopies at NYU Langone Brooklyn Endoscopy and Ambulatory Surgery Center and NYU Langone Hospital—Brooklyn. I also provide inpatient consultations for gastrointestinal conditions at the hospital, and I recognize the importance of ensuring the safe transition of care after discharge.

I treat patients the way I would like to see my family and friends treated. I value collaborating with my patients’ primary care doctors and other specialists to create the safest and most effective treatment plan.

My research focus during medical training was identifying risk factors for pancreatic and colorectal cancers and improving colorectal cancer screening. I remain interested in applying these principles to my clinical care.
