About Me

In fifth grade, I had 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. It was from that moment on that I knew what I wanted to do with my life. I started out volunteering in my pediatrician’s office, and after, I volunteered at the Nassau County Poison Control Center.

After completing medical school, I wasn’t sure which specialty I wanted to pursue. I had the opportunity to participate in a transitional year before making up my mind, and realized that there wasn’t one specialty that I was interested in more than the others. Internal medicine allows me to see how different parts of the body interact and the outcome of those interactions.

As an internist, I have the ability to treat various ailments, from congestive heart failure, pneumonia, gastrointestinal bleeding, and blood clots, among others. I evaluate and treat patients from age 18 to older than 100.

My associates and I are hospital-based. Although we don’t have a private outpatient practice, we work with many physicians who do. These relationships allow us to maintain good continuity between patients’ hospitalization and their primary care. We provide this continuity even with physicians with whom we do not have an existing relationship, so there’s no disruption of care once a patient is discharged.

When I work with patients, I treat the whole person. I aim to provide each and every one of my patients with the same care and compassion that I would want for my own family.
