Musculoskeletal podiatry (tendons, ligaments, bones); Nonsurgical diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle
We post reviews for MSK healthcare providers who have at least 30 patient experience surveys completed. If you do not see reviews for a provider, it may be because they do not yet have enough survey responses, or the provider may not be part of the group of healthcare providers included in the survey.
Only outpatient providers are included in the survey. Healthcare providers who only work in the hospital or in urgent care are not included in the survey. Pathologists or researchers who do not provide direct care to patients do not have reviews.

I received my medical degree from New York College of Podiatric Medicine/Foot Clinics of New York, where I also completed a fellowship in podiatric and preventive occupational medicine. In addition, I hold a master’s of science degree in environmental medicine/occupational medicine from New York University, a master’s of public health degree from Yale (with honors and with distinction), and a doctor of science degree from New York College of Podiatric Medicine. I have professional and academic appointments at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell, and Yale School of Public Health/School of Medicine.
I specialize in musculoskeletal podiatry (tendons, ligaments, and bones) including the nonsurgical diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the foot and ankle. I bring a wealth of experience and expertise in these areas to patients receiving treatment and professional staff and employees at MSK.
