Primary Care Doctor in Philadelphia, PA

I grew up in Maryland, the eldest of four children, with a much larger extended family. Growing up, I often tried to cram as many different activities into my free time as possible. From swimming and backstage theatre craft, to traveling and studying French, I was always engaged in some new activity. I ultimately chose to pursue my love of biology and medicine by attending the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. I then completed my Internal Medicine residency and the Primary Care Track program at Temple University Hospital. Though I’ve only lived in Philadelphia a few short years, I have come to love the city and think of it as my home. I hope to continue living in Philly and serving the community as a primary care physician for many years to come.

In my free time, I love reading, exploring the city, and going home to Maryland to spend time with my family.

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).


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.
