  • First considered becoming a physician: before college
  • Why medicine: I liked the idea of combining my interest in science and working directly with people.
  • Why pediatrics: I chose pediatrics after second year of medical school during a summer internship with a local pediatrician in Gloversville, NY.
  • Interests away from pediatrics: music, playing my guitars, fishing, astronomy
  • Sports allegiance: Yankees, Duke Basketball
  • Proud achievement: As of this writing in 2015, I have never had a ticket in 44 years of driving; also, all of my children are gainfully employed and fully grounded in our preaching that their family will always be there for them.
