Growing up in a family of physicians, I knew from a young age that I wanted to make a difference in other people’s lives. This passion grew, and ultimately prompted me to pursue a career as an allergy and immunology specialist.

I see children and adults with a variety of conditions, including allergies, asthma, and immunologic disorders. I also provide care for patients with rare and potentially life-threatening disorders of the immune system. I have enhanced training in dermatology and have a special interest in dermatologic manifestations of allergic diseases. I treat each patient with respect and provide thorough evaluations to design a treatment plan that suits his or her individual needs.

NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island is well regarded for our management of allergic skin diseases. We are one of the few centers in the nation that evaluates patients with allergies to chemotherapeutic agents, aspirin, biologics, and other drugs, and that also performs drug desensitization.

In addition to serving as a physician and educator, I conduct research on allergic skin disease, including new medications for atopic dermatitis and difficult to control urticaria. I am also the president of the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology. My research also focuses on patients with suspect reactions to biomedical devices, such as knee or hip replacements, cardiac stents, or dental devices.
