I aspired to become a pediatrician from the age of four because I knew even at that early age that it was my vocation. My formative and extensive training was primarily obtained at Lincoln Hospital treating illnesses at the urgent/emergency care level and assisting in procedures and surgeries.
In 1990, I founded my practice, Mill Pond Pediatrics in Somers, where I established a pleasant and comforting atmosphere for infants to young adults. In 2007, I proudly co-founded Westchester Health Associates which became part of Northwell Health 10 years later.
As a pediatrician, my medical objective is to help children maintain the highest level of health and happiness. I focus on preventive measures to ensure that the children I treat achieve, maintain and improve their quality of health.
I extend a sense of warmth and understanding to help parents through all stages of parenthood. My goal is to provide the best medical service with a comfortable and compassionate family element. I enjoy helping children and their families create a strong foundation on which they can establish productive, gratifying and healthy lives.
