Primary Care Doctor in Philadelphia, PA

What I like most about caring for patients is the satisfaction I gain from helping them achieve better health. I enjoy long-term relationships with many, many of my patients and often care for several generations within one family. I see patient care as a partnership that requires me to bring my extensive hospital and outpatient experience to the table. This allows me to maintain involvement in all aspects of a patient’s care, while being an effective advocate on their behalf. I ask my patients, in return, to set personal health care goals and to participate actively in their own care.

I chose medicine as a career after teaching elementary school & working with emotionally disturbed children for several years. In this path I followed my grandfather, who was one of the first physicians in this country to be trained after medical education was changed to have a more scientific basis in the second decade of the 20th century. I vividly remember accompanying him when he made hospital rounds and home visits.

In addition to seeing patients I have also been organizing a network of physician practices in the Greater Philadelphia area that are all organized on the principles of the Patient-Centered Medical Home. We are working together to improve the quality of patient care in this area.

In my spare time I enjoy being with my wife Sara and 3 children (now all teenagers!), whose artwork has been on display in my exam rooms. Together we love outdoor activities such as skiing, hiking, canoeing and camping. I also enjoy weekend barbecues and jazz and blues music.

COVID-19 Vaccine


We are pleased to announce that NSIM is partnering with Centennial Pharmacy Services to administer COVID vaccine shots in our office. We have worked closely with Centennial Pharmacy Services for many years and they are a trusted partner.

We do not know when our first doses of vaccine will arrive nor do we know how many doses we will get on a weekly basis. The number of people who want the vaccine is far greater than the supply Philadelphia receives weekly from the federal government.  We are following the Philadelphia Health Department prioritization phases in administering the vaccine. We anticipate it will take at least until the end of May or longer before the city has vaccinated all people over 65, those with chronic medical conditions, and those working in occupations essential to our economy.

If you want to receive the vaccine in our office when we receive a supply:

Register your interest

You will complete and submit a questionnaire. The information you submit is confidential and the only people who have access to it are the staff of NSIM and Centennial Pharmacy. It will be used only for the purpose of COVID vaccine administration and not for any marketing purposes or sold to any other entity. Once we know that we are receiving the vaccine, you will be contacted about an appointment time by Centennial Pharmacy either by text message, email, or phone (depending on your contact preference).

WE URGE ALL OF OUR PATIENTS TO GET THE VACCINE.

If you have any concerns about the safety, effectiveness, rapidity of development or other issues regarding the COVID vaccines, please contact your primary care provider at NSIM.

Please be patient. No one will be truly safe until everyone in our country who desires the vaccine has received it.  Please continue to wear your mask when outside of your home, maintain social distance, wash your hands, and follow other guidelines from the health department and CDC. Once you receive the vaccine, you will need to strictly maintain these precautions at all times until our public health officials tell us otherwise.
