Who am I ?
I was born in February 1964, the youngest of five in an Irish/ Italian family in Queens. My Pop was a general surgeon and met Mom when she walked into his operating room as a scrub nurse.
Pop was pretty frustrated with me, until I discovered basketball and he explained to me that I could only play on the team if I had straight A's. Archbishop Molloy High School was a great time in my life, and my friends from those days are still my friends today.
I studied biology at Union College in New York and then medicine at the Chicago Medical School. After medical school I did my residency and internship at Georgetown University Medical School in Washington, D.C., after an internship in LA at Cedar Sinai.
While living in D.C. in the late 1990s, I met my wife, we married two years later, and in 2002, we moved to Hilton Head from New York. Natalie and I have two great, fun kids.
Julia is on the Cross Country team and loves theater. She not only enjoys being on stage, but also likes to learn about all the different technical jobs in the theater. Julia also plays chess on the school team and has won several tournaments.
Jack is a huge reader. He also plays baseball and kick-boxes. I think Jack is probably the biggest lover of travel in the family and is always up for it when we say, "let's go somewhere this weekend."
My father-in-law lives around the corner and we see him every day. Sunday night dinner with the family is a tradition.
We all love to travel and enjoy spending time with our family.
Who are you ?
You have a story, too. That life story is a part of your wellness plan for the future.
We want to get to know you as a person. What events in your life have shaped you and made you who you are? It used to be that you had the same doctor all your life. Your internist kept track of all the elements of your medical history.
The challenge today is to deliver that same old-fashioned care. In today’s medical/healthcare environment, internal medicine is the discipline that most allows the doctor to know the whole person.
Join us to make your life story healthy and strong.
