About Me

I am from a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania. I graduated from the University of Scranton and then attended Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia where I attained a medical degree. While doing a student rotation at the Medical Center of Delaware in Wilmington, Delaware, I became interested in emergency medicine. I trained as a resident in the Medical Center of Delaware emergency medicine residency program and then became an attending physician with DFES. The Medical Center of Delaware has since changed its name to Christiana Care.

I enjoy working for DFES at Christiana Care with an exceptional medical team dedicated to high quality and compassionate patient care. When not working in the emergency department I like to travel with his wife and two sons. We live in Glen Mills, PA.
