I grew up and lived in New York City until my move to the Amherst area in 2010. Though this was a big change for me and my family, it was the best decision we ever made. We have made this beautiful part of the country our home, and feel privileged to be a part of the communities around us.
While I have always practiced pediatrics, my career has also been devoted to the training of young pediatricians. In New York, I was the director of the pediatric resident training clinic at Saint Vincent’s Hospital for 16 years. I held the same position at Baystate Children’s Hospital in Springfield, MA from 2010 to 2013. I have a strong interest in medical myth and the ways parents utilize information to make medical decisions for their children. I am also interested in finding innovative ways to deliver the most effective, evidence-based medicine as part of a patient-centered medical home. I received my undergraduate degree from Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT, graduated from Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and completed my residency training in pediatrics at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. I am an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at Tufts University School of Medicine, and a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
I live in Amherst with my wife, Kim, and my daughter, Maggie. I have a passion for science, music, photography, and the outdoors.
