Personal Statement

I have been a faculty member at Weill Medical College since 1980 and a participant in the Cornell Nephrology Group Practice since its formation in 1992. My roles within the Nephrology Division have included Director of Dialysis and Chief of the Division. My subspecialty practice within an academic medical center allows me to deliver care at a level well beyond what I might do as an individual. At NYPH, I enjoy a general nephrology practice, with specific interest in fluid and electrolyte disorders, acute and chronic kidney failure, and renal abnormalities encountered in multiple myeloma.
