I immigrated to New York at six years old with my family. I was the first person in my family to go to college, and I enrolled in NYU School of Medicine in 1971. I specialize in minimally invasive surgery for diseases of the adrenal gland, such as the removal of adrenal tumors. I love the immediacy of surgery—of being able to fix something right away—and I’m grateful that I’m part of this talented team of doctors and nurses at NYU. A great day is when I’ve helped cure a patient and know that she will go on to live a healthy and productive life. I genuinely care about my patients, beyond the condition they have or the condition they have or the surgery I perform. I try to teach students and residents to take this humanistic approach.
