About me

I was born in New Haven, Conn., as the second of four children. My parents, both children of immigrant parents, spoke English as their second language. My father became a physician after World War II, and I have followed in his footsteps. He is honored as the first physician in our family. Through example, they taught me to value education, work and compassion for others.

I have been married for more than 40 years to my high school sweetheart, a speech pathologist, who has been my dedicated partner throughout all of my training and career. We are blessed with three adult children, and we have become grandparents in the past few years. Being a grandparent is one of the greatest joys in the world!

It was after 13 years of medical practice in Hartford, Conn., following a winter in which we had 120 inches of snow in three months, that I decided to head south. I specifically chose Atlanta because of my desire to be affiliated with Kaiser Permanente. Kaiser Permanente is truly unique in its dedication to preventive health care, and I feel fortunate to be practicing as a Kaiser Permanente physician.

About my practice

My reasons for choosing Ob/Gyn as a medical physician were multifaceted. Ob/Gyn is a unique field of medicine as it allows me to practice as a primary care physician, a surgeon and assist in bringing new life into the world. It gives me the opportunity to get to know the member and their families across an extended length of time. I find this very rewarding.

I have always tried to educate and provide our members with current medical and surgical treatment options. I involve patients in decision making and consider education of their condition or disease an integral part of medicine today. I believe that being able to offer less invasive medical and surgical treatments is an asset to our members.

How I thrive

I have always been surrounded by music, and I almost chose music as a career. Now I mostly play the piano for pleasure, but do play occasionally at nursing homes. They are always a good audience, especially around the holidays.

I enjoy sailing and boating. When I was in medical school, I built a catamaran, stem to stern, sails and all. I sailed it off of the coasts of Connecticut, Rhode Island and Cape Cod. Now it is on Lake Lanier.

I am also fortunate to live close enough to my office that I can ride my bike to work, weather permitting. Mostly, I consider myself a family man, and attain my greatest satisfaction and pleasure by being with family.
