Describe some of your professional highlights.

I am board certified in internal medicine, gastroenterology and geriatric medicine.  I’m a fellow of the American College of Physicians.  I graduated New York Medical College in 1975 with honors.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I approach my care of patients by evaluating the "whole" patient. This includes the psychosocial history of the patient, which often contributes to a patient's physical symptoms.  It is well known that the mind and the gut are closely related, and I find the best results occur when both of those aspects of the patient's health are considered.
