I attended the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy in Aurora, Illinois, as part of the inaugural class for the magnet high school, and from there I was accepted into the accelerated Honors Program in Medical Education at Northwestern University, an early acceptance medical school program. I then completed an internship in internal medicine at Evanston Hospital and then a three year residency program in dermatology at the University of Illinois at Chicago. After my training I moved to Phoenix, Arizona, to work in private practice for eighteen years, fourteen years of which were in my own solo office. Now my wife and I have relocated to the New Orleans area to enjoy the unique culture and the wonderful people. We aspire to be contributing members of a vibrant community. My goal is to provide consistent medical care consisting of accurate diagnosis, advice, and partnership with patients to decide on courses of action and management.
