I am an internist with a practice in Summit Medical Group in Berkeley Heights, NJ. I have an expertise in women’s health, sports medicine, and the psycho-social aspects of medicine. I like to establish relationships with my patients with a non-judgmental approach, with empathy and compassion.
Even though I wear my white coat and stethoscope every day, I am a human being, a wife, mother and daughter and understand how life’s stressors can impact one’s health.
Prior to moving to New Jersey in 2011, I owned my own medical practice in the Flatiron District of New York City. I completed my undergraduate degree at New York University in 1993 and then went on to New York University School of Medicine and completed my medical degree in 1997.
I pursued a Bowen Brooks fellowship at the University of Oxford, England in evidence based medicine. I then completed my internship and residency in internal medicine at NYU Langone Medical Center/ Bellevue Hospital in 2001.
Studying and training in New York City was not easy. It made me a tougher person and made me learn to think out of the box. I grew not only as a doctor, but became a writer and have appeared in medical podcasts and as a guest speaker on PBS NJ News.
I learned to grow and maintain resources which are vital for patient care, both in New York City, New Jersey and Philadelphia.
I have received numerous patient satisfaction awards and was named to Castle Connolly’s New York Metro Area Top Docs in 2016. Look for me in Inside Jersey’s Top Docs edition in October 2016.
