My prac­tice is ded­i­cat­ed to pro­vid­ing the high­est qual­i­ty care to all patients with respect, com­pas­sion and atten­tion to detail. As one of the for­mer team physi­cians for the New York Giants Foot­ball team and Iona Col­lege, I am pas­sion­ate about sports med­i­cine and the pre­ven­tion and man­age­ment of sports-relat­ed injuries. My edu­ca­tion­al expe­ri­ence at the Hos­pi­tal for Spe­cial Surgery allows me to use evi­dence-based med­i­cine to treat injuries with state-of-the-art tech­niques. My goal is to edu­cate and involve each patient so togeth­er we can make the best deci­sion for each indi­vid­ual, focus­ing on patient-cen­tered care.
