About

About

The reason I decided to specialize in breast surgery and breast care was to give my patients access to the latest advances in a caring and compassionate office that caters to their needs. In order to meet my patients' highest expectations, I needed to be able to provide a friendly, helpful staff and state-of-the-art care. Every time I make a positive difference in a patients life, I know that all my hard work has paid off.

During the span of my career, some of the awards and honors I have been the recipient of are as follows: the first ever Physician of Distinction Award by the American Cancer Society, the Healing Hero Award from the Nassau County Legislature, the Doctors Against Cancer Award from the National Hockey League, as well as being a multiple recipient of The Patients Choice Award.

I have held various academic appointments and have written many articles on the subjects of breast cancer, benign breast diseases and breast surgery. I was also a featured guest, speaker and contributor to the American Cancer Society, The Today Show, Cablevision, Newsday, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, The God Squad, SHLI Radio, KJOY Radio and News 12 Long Island, as well as hospitals, corporations and other community and local groups.

As a board-certified surgeon, I have taken on the responsibility of not only educating my patients, but also continually educating myself about the latest breakthroughs and procedures in the field. Often, this means performing independent research,and attending surgical conferences, training seminars and lectures nationwide. It is important to me to gain exposure to innovative ideas while engaging in exchanges with peers. I am often called upon to teach and share my expertise with other surgeons and physicians. This helps to keep me on the cutting edge.
