Personal Statement

I am drawn to primary care internal medicine in New York City for several reasons. After completing residency here at NYP-Cornell, my admiration has grown for the diverse population and life experiences that make our city so vibrant. I enjoy building strong, longitudinal relationships with my patients, centered on providing evidenced based care in a comfortable setting. In addition, I value lifelong learning - learning not only from each other during our shared encounters in the clinic but also from the ever changing field of medicine itself. I am thrilled to be your primary care doctor and I look forward to our partnership.
