I have practiced primary care general pediatrics since 1967, starting with the U.S. Army Medical Corps, followed by 35 years in the Panorama Pediatric Group, and, for the last 9 years, in the Resident Continuity Clinic at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I especially enjoy practicing and teaching at the same time, allowing me to share my experience with younger physicians.
