A brief summary of my work as a physician includes having worked over 40 years in EMS/medical care. I first started as an EMT working ambulance in the projects in Chicago in 1976. Along with my medical background, I have sought and worked in various areas of Research and Development; always trying to learn and be on the cutting edge of new technology and opportunities to create.
I have been a physician for more than 32 years, having worked in Florida since 1988. My credentials include my experience as an Emergency Physician for a total of 16 years (1988-2001 in Florida at Jupiter Medical Center) where I also functioned as the EMS Director for Northern Palm Beach County. I began work as a Primary Care physician following the birth of my son in Internal Medicine for 15 years. As my children grew older and medicine began to change I again returned to Urgent Care which I had done intermittently in the past, but now full-time since 2016. Presently, I am the full-time physician for Okeechobee Urgent Care.
