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 my spare time I enjoy being with my wife Sara and 3 children, now all in their late 20s and early 30s), whose artwork (created in grade school) 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.
