I have spent my entire life in the Greater Philadelphia Region.  Growing up in Radnor, Pennsylvania, I spent summers as a camp counselor and used spare time to volunteer at the children’s hospital.  I attended Penn for undergraduate studies, and then headed across the city to Temple for medical school with the idea of pursuing a career in pediatrics.  As I progressed through my education, I realized that I had a greater interest in caring for adults.  In general internal medicine, I found that I enjoy forming therapeutic relationships with patients, and working with them to manage both acute and chronic illnesses.  I stayed at my medical alma mater, and completed a residency in internal medicine at Temple.  After training, I was selected to stay on as a Chief Resident and faculty member.  While I enjoyed teaching and mentoring residents, I preferred my time one-on-one with patients in the office, and I am now happy to provide patient-centered care at NSIM.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Amy and our families and friends.  Together we enjoy cooking and exploring new restaurants across the city.  I also enjoy spending time outdoors and reading science fiction.

COVID-19 Update

If you are sick or were exposed to someone with COVID-19, please contact our office. We are seeing sick patients in the office during special hours in the late afternoon, and we are still doing telehealth visits as well. We can perform both rapid COVID-19 testing and send-out COVID-19 testing at our office depending on what you need, as well as regular flu and strep testing too. Please schedule an appointment so you can discuss with a medical provider what is best for you.

Due to limited resources during the current COVID-19 surge, we will not be performing COVID-19 testing on patients who are asymptomatic and without any known exposure.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19, you should isolate at home until your appointment. The optimal window for testing is 5-7 days after an exposure, but please call us right away so we can make all of the proper arrangements for you.

If you live in the same household with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you are at a high risk of becoming infected. You should quarantine at home until you can be sure that you are not infected. Please schedule a telehealth visit for specific instructions for your individual situation.
