I have been practicing locally for 24 years, with a special interest in sports-related injuries. My passion is prevention of injury and keeping the athlete healthy and playing. I grew up on Long Island and played sports in high school and college. I  have coached locally for many years – CYO and Little League – ages 5 to 15, in softball and basketball.


I am very compassionate in what I do. I strive to figure out the problem and, most importantly, improve function and relieve pain. My goal is prevention of injury and maintenance of function, utilizing conservative measures.
