I am a lifelong NJ resident and have been caring for the children of Ocean County for 3 decades. I am a graduate of Columbia University and UMDNJ Rutgers Medical School. Caring for children has been a primary focus of both my professional and my personal life. In addition to my medical practice, I have participated in overseas missions with Operation Smile and have for years been a proud member of the board of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Ocean County. My philosophy of patient care is for each child to be treated with respect as an individual. I strive to manage health and use medications scientifically and conservatively.
