About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

My maternal grandfather enjoyed a long, fulfilling career as an oncologic surgeon in Wilkes-Barre. My paternal grandparents met after having been sent to a tuberculosis sanitarium in Lake Placid, New York. My parents met at Cornell University before my father went to serve in the Army in Korea. My brother became an orthopedic surgeon and now practices in Virginia. I chose a career in medicine because wanted to understand more, get chance to help others, and join the esteemed field of thought leaders, diagnosticians, and surgeons.

What I want my patients to know about me:

We first visited Lancaster County during my cardiology fellowship at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. We fell in love with the people and the community and moved here to stay in 2002. My wife is actively engaged in volunteer work to help women and children in the region. My oldest son graduated from Franklin and Marshall College and is now in a master's program in government. My middle son is a history major at Dickinson in Carlisle. My youngest son, born in Lancaster, is in middle school. I have been told I have a dry sense of humor, and I am a joy to be with.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

On weekends we travel to see our sons in Carlisle and Washington, DC. We take regular trips to Hershey Chocolate World, and we take home bags full of red Twizzlers and chocolate. I have always had a healthy interest in cars and am still (sort of) looking for an orange 1969 Ford Mustang Mach I. I have been seen exercising at Universal Health Club and Planet Fitness while listening to 1970s rock music—The Who being my favorite. I am currently growing two little bonsai trees at home. I frequently run into patients and co-workers at the grocery store, the mall, and various restaurants.
