As a board certified internist, I take pride in cultivating a warm and patient-focused practice. I take pride in the trusted relationships I've developed with my patients. My areas of expertise include managing Asthma, Diabetes, Heartburn/GERD, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Hypothyroidism, STDs, and Travel and Routine Vaccinations. I attended Duke University as an undergraduate before moving onto NYU where I received an MD and later completed residency training in Internal Medicine. I have spent time on two medical missions with Doctors Without Borders, spending 6 months and 3 months in South Sudan and Nigeria, respectively. I also spent 2 months at a hospital and clinic on the Navajo Indian Reservation in Chinle, Arizona.
