Philosophy of Care

My practice is dedicated to providing the highest quality care to all patients with respect, compassion and attention to detail. As one of the former team physicians for the New York Giants Football team and Iona College, I am passionate about sports medicine and the prevention and management of sports-related injuries. My educational experience at the Hospital for Special Surgery allows me to use evidence based medicine to treat injuries with state of the art techniques. My goal is to educate and involve each patient so together we can make the best decision for each individual, focusing on patient-centered care.
