Personal Statement

I have been a faculty member at Weill Medical College since 1982 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. Subspecialty practice within an academic medical center allows each of us to deliver care at a level well beyond what we might do as individuals. 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.
