Where Were You Born & Raised?
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. As a child I had the honor of attending Poly Prep C.D.S. in Brooklyn as well.
What is Your Favorite Part About Being an Ophthalmologist?
I love seeing the happy faces of patients we care for. I especially love restoring the vision of individuals who were barely able to see at all with or without glasses when first stepping into our practice. The transformation is always incredible.

My absolute favorite thing to do is spend time with my family. I have a set of twins, one boy and one girl. I also enjoy golfing, biking, and squash.
