Over 20 years of experience in private practice and academic settings have given me a broad range of experience in general and surgical dermatology. I have been proud to be recognized by my local and regional peers as a past president of The Chicago Dermatological Society as well as the Illinois Dermatological Society. I was also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Dermatology at Rush University Medical Center where I taught for over 20 years. I ran my own private practice in Arlington Heights, Illinois for over 20 years and am excited to have recently joined Mercy Health System where I see patients daily in their dermatology department at the Mercy Woodstock as well as at the Mercy Barrington locations. I see adults and children with a broad range of dermatology problems and do many biopsies, excisions and other procedures. I try to educate patients about their conditions and help them make the best decisions about which treatments are best for them.

I try to educate patients about which treatments are best for them and offer as full of a range of treatment options as possible. I also like to try to get to know my patients on a friendly basis and have positive visits so they can look forward to seeing their dermatologist and having an ongoing professional relationship that is healthy for them. I often find that by looking at patients holistically and as a physician and not just as a dermatologist, I can help make better diagnoses and offer better treatment options.
