I’ve always loved teaching and medicine. Although I ultimately chose a career in medicine, I spent more than 25 years as a residency program director and devoted a large amount of time to teaching. I chose to specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation because the goal of the field is to improve patients’ quality of life by maximizing function. I know of nothing more satisfying than improving someone’s quality of life.

My treatment philosophy is to treat the whole person and help people be as functional as possible. Most of my patients have muscle or nerve injuries. I perform electrodiagnostic testing to help diagnose these injuries and wrote one of the most frequently used books on teaching other doctors how to perform this test—Easy EMG.

NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island has an integrative team approach to healthcare. My team and I are dedicated to creating a streamlined, multidisciplinary, patient-focused approach to lower back pain. Our staff are some of the brightest, most skilled clinicians I have ever met. We can manage any condition.

I have written 9 books and 19 book chapters, as well as numerous articles and abstracts. I am active in the Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP) and the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R). I am an active member of the Women in Academic Medicine work group and secretary of the AAP Chair Council, and I sit on the Leadership Development and Recognition Committee. I was the 2014 recipient of the AAPM&R Distinguished Clinician Award and received the Frank L. Bobott Memorial Award from the Downstate Alumni Association for distinguished service to both the medical profession and the general community. I have been recognized by Castle Connolly’s America’s Top Doctors® series every year since 1988.
