Learn about this doctor

Care Philosophy

I practiced in a major teaching hospital for over 20 years before relocating in Westchester. There is little that I haven't seen or treated in General Surgery. When a patient is referred to me, I must first determine whether the patient needs surgery or not. Then I discuss with the patient, the risks vs. benefits of having surgery and the type of surgery I would recommend. The span of my practice has enabled me to become proficient in open surgery as well as minimally invasive surgery.Read more

Easy to trust and has an extremely capable and confident demeanor without being egotistical or having a God complex. My only criticism is that he has a tendency (in hospital during brief daily visits) to start physically backing out of the room while the patient is still talking or expressing concern about an issue, so at times there is a feeling of being rushed.
