As the son of an old-time, house call making General Practitioner, I have been involved with medical care almost my entire life. I made my first house call at the age of two and have wanted to be a doctor ever since. I am grateful to have the opportunity, responsibility and honor of being one. Because of my double board certification in ENT and Plastic Surgery, I have developed a special interest in nasal surgery. I have performed a very large number of these procedures over the years, including correction of deviated nasal septums, obstructed nasal valves, rhinoplasty and fixing injured noses. I also perform revision surgery for patients who are unhappy with the results of previous procedures done by other physicians. While these revisions are challenging, I have been able to help most patient breathe and/or look better. I am often referred patients by other ENT doctors and Plastic Surgeons for difficult nose cases. Besides my ENT training at Manhattan Eye and Ear Hospital, I have trained and lived in Ohio and Illinois. I have been Chief of Plastic Surgery at Norwalk Hospital since 1996 and am a member of the Department of Surgery Executive Committee. I have reviewed problem cases for the State of Connecticut Medical Licensing Board as well as other state boards. I currently reside in Westport with my wife Andrea and our two sons are in college. My son, Joshua, is continuing the family tradition and has been accepted to medical school.
