About me

Welcome to my Web page. I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself.

Biography

Although I was born and raised in New Jersey, Orange County is my home — where my parents, brother, and wife all reside. From a young age, I knew I wanted to become a physician and make a difference in the lives of others. I came from a humble upbringing, and my decade-long medical training in diverse cities has brought me a deep appreciation for all walks of life. I graduated college from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh with academic and research honors. I attended Tulane Medical School in New Orleans and was part of the first class to start after the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I completed my internal medicine residency at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia. Finally, I received my clinical gastroenterology and hepatology training from the University of Maryland and National Institutes of Health in Baltimore and Bethesda.

About my practice

I am interested in all aspects of gastroenterology and hepatology. I read daily to keep up to date. I have written multiple peer-reviewed articles, including first-author publications in leading journals such as Hepatology. I have also delivered first-author oral presentations at the largest gastroenterology conferences: American College of Gastroenterology and Digestive Diseases Week. My practice consists of an outstanding team of colleague physicians, nurses, medical assistants, and other health care providers that are committed to delivering high-quality member-centered care.

How I thrive

I enjoy movies, boxing/mixed martial arts, the beach, good food, and spending time with family.
