Education and Training
I completed my Chief Residency
and my Residency in Internal
Medicine at SUNY Upstate
Medical University. I received my
Doctor of Medicine degree from
the Upstate Medical University.
I received my Master of Science
in Public Health degree from
Syracuse University and Upstate Medical University Master.

I believe in coming together to formulate a treatment
plan that works for each patient including taking into
consideration each patient’s goals and lifestyle.

Special Interests
In addition to internal medicine, I am interested in
women’s health, rheumatology and geriatrics.

On a Personal Note
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family
and my dog.
