I am an MD, FAAP, board certified pediatrician and am on the faculty, and hold academic appointments at Mount Sinai School of Medicine (Departments of Pediatrics and Community & Preventive Medicine) and New York University School of Medicine (Department of Pediatrics) as a Clinical Associate Professor of Pediatrics. I was the former Director of the Pediatric Residency Program at Woodhull Medical Center in Brooklyn, New York and just recently accepted the position as Vice President for Ambulatory Care with Nassau Health Care Corporation in Long Island, New York. A graduate of Cornell University, I obtained my medical degree and training at New Jersey School of Medicine, Roosevelt-St. Luke’s, and New York University Medical Centers in New York City. A Fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine and American Academy of Pediatrics, I have extensive experience and expertise in private practice—and look forward to answering your parenting questions!
