A bit about me.

A brief biography.

I'm a native of NewJersey, growing up on the shore near Seaside Heights in a small town. After graduating from Monmouth University I went to Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. I completed my residency at New York Downtown Hospital (now New York-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan) which was at the time part of the New York University system but is now part of Columbia-Cornell. My residency included rotations through various NYU facilities as well as several months at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Following residency, I remained at New York Downtown and ran the gynecology clinic at Chinatown Health Clinic and The Asian Health Center of Flushing. I'd wanted to relocate to Texas, and when an opportunity arose, my wife Stephanie and I moved to Dallas. That was 1998 and we've lived here happily since. Together Stephanie and I made two native Texans- Christopher in 2004 and Isabella in 2008.

About the practice

I moved to Dallas and started my solo practice in 1998. When I was recruited to Dallas, I was under the impression that I'd be joining a group, but I'm happy with the way things worked out. I prefer to do important things myself, whether its writing this website or overseeing my patients care. During off-hours, I'm usually available; when I'm not, the doctors who cover me are fantastic.

After years of full obstetrics and gynecology practice, I was one of a few hundred doctors qualified to meet the criteria for subspecialty certification in Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, also known as Urogynecology. As a board-certified subspecialist, it's generally poor form to continue a largely general practice. I still provide general gynecology services, as my subspecialty includes the management of difficult gynecology cases, and for my patients who become pregnant, I will confirm their pregnancy is healthy and refer to a general Ob/Gyn colleague for the pregnancy duration.

I've remained active within my specialty, holding several leadership and committee roles within my hospitals and specialty organizations. I'm thankful for the recognition I've received from my patients and my peers for my efforts. While I want you to receive the best care available when you trust me with your health, my staff and I try to deliver this care in a personal manner. We're aware that being a patient can be uncomfortable in many ways and we aim to make the experience the best it can be for your circumstances.
