Although not born in Florida, I have lived in the Boca Raton area since 1963. A graduate of Florida Atlantic University, and the University of Miami School of Medicine, I trained in Anesthesia and Critical Care at University of Florida in Gainesville, The Texas Heart Institute in Houston, Texas, and University Hospital in Jacksonville. I did post-graduate research involving monitoring techniques including EEG, Evoked potentials, and Transesophageal echocardiography. I am licensed in Florida, Board Certified in Anesthesiology, and am a Member of AOA, medical honor society. I have practiced at Boca Raton Community Hospital since 1988. I have an intense interest in fishing, especially on the Flats of the Florida Keys.
