I have been with the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group since 2003. I joined after I served two years as a faculty member in the renal-electrolyte division at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, following my training.

I have a special clinical interest in kidney and pancreas transplantation and in severe hypertension and secondary hypertension.

In addition to being a general nephrologist, I am a specialist in clinical hypertension and serve as the renal transplant lead for the Mid-Atlantic region.
