Philosophy on patient care:
I am very concerned about how antibiotics are being abused in the pediatric population and do my best to educate parents in my practice that they do not need to be prescribed for common pediatric viral infections. Childhood developmental disorders/PPD/Autism spectrum disorders, need to be diagnosed and referred to early Intervention programs as early as possible, as they have been proven to be very successful and can make a big difference in a child's future. I have found that a mother always knows when there is "something just not right" with her child and needs to be heard.

My clinical interests are in PDD/Autism spectrum disorders.

I enjoy spending quality time and cooking with my grown-up twin daughters.

I am affiliated with Brooklyn Hospital and my affiliation with Methodist Hospital is pending in progress.
