Professional Statement

  • I HAVE HAD OVER 30 YEARS EXPERIENCE AS A DERMATOLOGIST. I HAVE ALWAYS TRIED TO COMBINE EXCELLENCE IN MEDICAL PRACTICE WITH COMPASSION FOR THE INDIVIDUAL. MY RESIDENCY TRAINING WAS DONE AT COLUMBIA-PRESBYTERIAN HOSPITAL IN NEW YORK, WHERE I WAS SELECTED CHIEF RESIDENT, SUPERVISING 10 OTHER DOCTORS. FOR THE NEXT TEN YEARS I WAS A PROFESSOR AT THE STATE UNIVERSITY OF NEW YORK, DOING RESEARCH ON SKIN CANCER, SKIN INFECTIONS, AND COLLAGEN DISEASES SUCH AS LUPUS ERYTHEMATOSUS. I DIRECTED THE DERMATOLOGY CLINIC AT KINGS COUNTY HOSPITAL, AND WAS CONSULTANT DERMATOLOGIST FOR THE ARTHRITIS CLINIC. SINCE 1990, I HAVE BEEN IN PRIVATE PRACTICE, WITH OFFICES IN MANHATTAN AND BROOKLYN, AND HAVE BEEN LISTED FOR MANY YEARS IN THE GUIDE TO THE BEST DOCTORS IN NEW YORK, PUBLISHED BY CASTLE-CONNELLY, AS WELL AS LISTED AS A "SUPER DOCTOR" IN THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE. I HAVE WRITTEN MANY SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES, BUT I ALWAYS KEEP THE INDIVIDUAL PATIENT'S NEEDS AS MY FIRST PRIORITY.
