Born and raised in New York City, I am a board-certified family physician working at Heritage Health and Housing, a federally qualified health center in West Harlem. I am a graduate of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons and completed my residency training at Columbia University/NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. My goal is to provide comprehensive, compassionate healthcare to patients of all ages and backgrounds. I enjoy carefully listening to my patients’ stories and working with them to develop personalized plans. Everyday, I feel privileged to be my patients’ primary care doctor.
I am an Instructor in Clinical Medicine for the Center for Family and Community Medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, and I am a supervising physician at Columbia-Harlem Homeless Medical Partnership, a free student-run medical clinic in West Harlem.
Particular interests of mine include:
- Healthful lifestyles: eating right and staying active.
- Counseling people with depression, anxiety, and stress.
- Managing chronic diseases, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and heart disease.
- Women’s health, such as pap smears, family planning and birth control, and abnormal bleeding.
- Musculoskeletal concerns, including evaluating and treating joint pain, and starting exercise.
