Additional Information

I am a board certified, actively practicing Emergency Medicine Physician and Fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP). I have 20 years of clinical, academic and administrative experience in the hospital setting. I am currently the Chairman of Emergency Medicine and Medical Director of the Emergency Department at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center, a large, urban teaching institution located in Newark, NJ, and Associate Professor of Emergency Medicine at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. I have been instructing attendings, fellows, residents, medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, pre-hospital providers and registered nurses in evidence-based emergency medicine clinical practice, patient safety, risk management and customer service since 2000. From January 2016 through December 2017, I was Chairman of the Committee of Department Chairs, a task force whose duty it is to ensure that all providers adhere to established clinical practice guidelines and meet or exceed the standard of care in all disciplines. My daily work includes direct patient care, beside teaching, peer review, quality improvement activities and management of ED flow.
