Hospital Appointment

Thomas Jefferson University Hospital


I am a family physician at Jefferson for my entire career doing both outpatient primary care and running a very busy inpatient service.  I attend to screening and prevention issues for patients of all ages.  I care for patients with chronic health diagnoses as well as acute, problem-focused issues.  I teach medical students through all four years of medical school, including ethics lectures in first year, and clinical teaching in third and fourth years.  I chair the TJUH ethics committee and perform ethics consults at bedside at TJUH.  I teach resident physicians in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.
