Philosophy of care

As a reconstructive foot and ankle surgeon, my philosophy revolves around treating each patient with the utmost compassion, as if they were a part of my own family. I am dedicated to the highest standards of care, drawing upon my training and experience to provide non-surgical solutions whenever possible. When surgery is necessary, I deliver an unmatched level of expertise.

Why I entered medicine

I genuinely care about improving lives by addressing specific foot and ankle problems, especially those that require surgery, whether it's easing pain or improving mobility. My commitment to providing specialized and compassionate care reflects my dedication to helping people lead healthier, more comfortable lives.

Community involvement

I am involved in my community through diverse roles that reflect my commitment to service. As a board member at the Jewish Community Center, I contribute to the development and enrichment of community programs. In the realm of sports, I find joy in coaching youth soccer, fostering teamwork and instilling values in young minds. My dedication to philanthropy is evident in my efforts to raise funds for non-profit organizations, supporting various causes close to my heart. I extend my commitment to education by educating medical students and residents. Additionally, I have frequently contributed my skills to clinics serving uninsured patients, ensuring quality health care is accessible to those in need. I believe in giving back and boosting the well-being of others.

Personal interests

My interests revolve around embracing the outdoors and enjoying quality time with my family. Skiing, hiking and biking keep me active and connected with nature, while playing squash adds a competitive and energetic element. I also cherish moments spent barbecuing, combining my love for tender smoked meats with the pleasure of outdoor gatherings with my wife, children and friends.
