About Me

My path to medicine began in the fifth grade when my class was assigned to read a biography about a person who had made a difference in society. Knowing my love for science, my teacher handed me a book about the first female physician, Elizabeth Blackwell. From that moment on, I knew what I wanted to do with my life.

After completing medical school, I realized I had a deep interest in all medical subspecialties. Internal medicine allows me to care for and treat a variety of patients with a wide range of conditions.

As an internist, I see patients who are 18 years and older for conditions such as pneumonia, gastrointestinal bleeding, blood clots, and congestive heart failure, among many others. My philosophy is to treat the whole person. I provide my patients with the same care and compassion that I would want for my own family.

My associates and I at are based at NYU Winthrop Hospital. Although we don’t have a private outpatient practice, we have relationships with many physicians who do see their patients in outpatient settings. These physician relationships allow us to maintain continuity of care between patients’ hospitalization, discharge, and follow-up care.

I am currently a medical unit director, which allows me to provide direct patient care and assist with complex cases and issues that require improved coordination of care in the hospital and upon discharge. Additionally, I am a member of the American College of Physicians.
