    I am a board-certified cardiologist with more than 25 years of experience, and an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Cardiology at The Mount Sinai Medical Center.

    I specialize in cardiovascular disease and nuclear cardiology, which employs noninvasive techniques to evaluate the blood flow and pumping action of the heart, including visualizing the size and location of a heart attack.

     I believe in educating my patients to ensure that each one understands the diagnosis and the plan of care we arrive at together. I have patient offices in Astoria, Jackson Heights and Manhattan.

Industry Relationships

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
