My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
I have served the Larchmont, Westchester County community for over 28 years. In my MDVIP-affiliated primary care practice, patients can schedule same-day appointments, and I can make house calls for those who cannot get to my office. I am affiliated with Greenwich Hospital in Connecticut and Montefiore New Rochelle in New York. I am fluent in English, French and Spanish with working knowledge of Italian and German. I look forward to working with you and for you.
