Personal Statement

Being a pediatrician gives me the opportunity to treat a wide spectrum of patients, from the moment they are born until they reach young adulthood. There is nothing more rewarding than being an advocate for promoting children’s health. I know that the difference I make in the life of a child will continue to have a positive effect not only in the present, but also for the rest of his/her life. Having been raised in New York City my entire life, it gives me great honor and satisfaction to be serving my community at NYP.
