After completing my chief residency in Chicago, IL in 2001, I worked in a small group practice in Chicago for a few years before moving back home to the Boston area in 2004. I have been at my current practice (just north of Boston) since November 2004 and have won various teaching awards, received a medical appointment to Harvard Medical School where I taught there for ten years (2006-2016) and was a preceptor for medical students from Brigham & Women's Hospital (Boston) and PA students from Northeastern University. Teaching medicine is my passion and advocating for my diverse patient population (ranging in age from 18 to 101) motivates me to be the best physician I can be. My clinical experience has helped me build a robust medical practice and I strongly believe I can help people navigate and make sense of medical complexities as they tie into legal concerns. I welcome this opportunity.
