I have been practicing internal medicine in Salem for more than 25 years, and I continue to get great satisfaction from my practice and working for Northwest Permanente. I have taken on several leadership roles but foremost enjoy caring for my patients. I graduated from UMDNJ-RWJMS-Camden, now known as Rutgers Medical School, in New Jersey, and then completed my internal medicine residency in Baltimore. My family includes a beautiful wife, two adult children, and two dogs. We have a great family full of love and humor.
About my practice
My main focus in internal medicine and in my practice over the years has been preventive medicine. My mantra is "quit smoking, lose weight, monitor your diet, and get daily exercise.
How I thrive
I practice what I preach! I exercise daily, which includes running, swimming, lifting weights, practicing yoga, and biking. I am very proud to say that I qualified for and ran the Boston Marathon in 2009. After 11 marathons, I now train mainly for half marathons, trail runs, and shorter distances. My current favorite event is the Olympic-length triathlon. I also like to garden, read, and spend time with my family and friends.
