I was born and raised in Brooklyn New York. My father and both older brothers are/were physicians. My oldest brother was the founder of the “Breast Health Plan of New York” and was a pioneer in minimally invasive breast cancer surgery.

I wanted to be a physician since childhood and love the practice of internal medicine. I consider it “the thinking man’s game.” One of my goals is to help patients define themselves by their hopes, dreams, passions and desires rather than by their medical illnesses.

I am the medical director of a long-term nursing and rehabilitation facility in Philadelphia.

I enjoy my patients and have long-standing devoted relationships with many of them.

I have been married 43 years to my delightful wife Sharon and have two grown children one a pediatrician/geneticist and the other a lawyer.

I enjoy the beach, swimming, physical fitness as well as Talmudic and biblical studies.
