I am a native of Washington DC. I have also lived in Israel (10 years), California (14 years), England (1 year) and have now returned home.

I joined Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group in 1995.

I practice general otolaryngology with a special clinical interest in the surgical management of thyroid and parathyroid diseases.

One of the great aspects of practicing with Kaiser Permanente is the close relationship I have developed with my partners. Our electronic medical record allows seamless sharing of information between physicians. This improves the care we deliver to our patients.

I look forward to meeting you in person.
