I was born in Brooklyn, New York, and raised by a hard working couple whose parents came from Italy, seeking the American Dream. My grandparents couldn't read or write English, but they made sure their children did, and knew that each generation had to be more successful then the one before. My parents achieved high school, and gave me the motivation and support to become a professional. They put me through Regis High School in Manhattan, then Fordham University in the Bronx, and the New York University School of Medicine. Next, I spent 5 years at the Cornell program at North Shore University Hospital in Long Island, becoming board certified in Internal Medicine and Cardiovascular Diseases. Along the way, I met my beautiful wife of 38 years. We came to Florida in 1983, when I joined this practice and began attending patients at Delray Medical Center and Bethesda Hospital. We raised our 3 children who are now all successful adults. Over the years, I have served in leadership roles on many committees at both of these hospitals. For the past several years, I have also been involved with teaching cardiology to medical residents at the FAU School of Medicine. Despite the never ending changes in the practice of medicine, I still enjoy seeing my patients each day as their doctor and their friend.

Do you remember when?
Your "health care provider" was a Medical Doctor, trained at U.S. academic centers, with deep roots in the community?
Your doctor was a true friend-in-need, available for a same day appointment or to reply to your urgent phone call, day or night?
Your doctor was there for you at a time of illness or crisis in the hospital or ICU?
You were a person, not a number on an insurance card or a file on a computer?
Today, this is called "VIP" or "Concierge" medicine, and "clients" are charged many hundreds of dollars for this service. At Intracoastal Cardiology Center, this has always been the standard of care for our patients.
