As a pediatric radiologist, I work with other doctors and specialists to care for patients. I specialize in pediatric abdominal, musculoskeletal and nuclear imaging. I believe in the value and importance of collaborating with a multidisciplinary team to diagnose and treat our patients.
I became interested in anatomy and physiology in college and medical school. This interest led me to complete a radiology residency. While in residency, I found pediatric imaging to be more rewarding and interesting than adult imaging. I enjoy the working environment of a children’s hospital, as colleagues tend to be happier and more fun to work with — probably because we’re all kids at heart.
My research focuses on investigating new imaging methods for pancreatic disorders.
In my free time, I enjoy traveling, playing recreational softball, trail running, hiking and volunteering at the animal shelter. I grew up in New Jersey, and I’m a huge Yankees and Knicks fan.
