Board Certified Nephrology
Board Certified Internal Medicine
Specializing in: all aspects of nephrology that includes acute and chronic kidney failure, hypertension, glomerular diseases, electrolyte and acid base disorders, kidney stones, kidney transplant, hemodialysis, and peritoneal dialysis.
I am passionate about helping patients with uncontrolled hypertension. Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure, is the leading risk factor for heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure. I specialize in the diagnosis and management of difficult-to-control hypertension and believe in a personalized approach for the individual patient rather than a one-size-fits-all model.
I am a Sarasota resident since 2021. Prior to relocating, I worked at BronxCare Health System in Bronx, NY from 2011 to 2021, and served as Chief of Nephrology from 2017 to 2021.
