About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I had an innate connection with the humanistic, as well as the scientific aspects, of the profession.

What I want my patients to know about me:

My family has lived in the Lebanon Valley since 1988. We moved here at the completion of my training. I practiced as an anesthesiologist at the Good Samaritan Hospital for 27 years before retiring for a brief time. I retrained in family medicine, and am enjoying my second career here in Lebanon as a primary care physician.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, playing golf, reading, and watching the Red Sox.
