Personal Statement

I am thrilled to be a part of the exceptional faculty at Weill Cornell Medicine.  As a former resident, I have experienced first-hand the department's commitment to excellence in patient care.  I specialize in treating skin disorders in infants, children and adolescents, and strive to make my patients feel at ease during their visit.  I enjoy working with families, and encourage questions and discussion.
