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.

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.
