Overview

I received my undergraduate degree from the University of Scranton and then earned my medical degree from Thomas Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. I completed a residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology here at St. Luke's Hospital and have lived in the Lehigh Valley since 1983. I am board-certified in the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and am a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. From March 2007 until December 2015 I was Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Easton Hospital. I'm also a member of the Pennsylvania and the Northampton County Medical Societies. My inspiration for entering medicine was the miracle of life. I have always been amazed at how the human heart beats without rest, how we fall asleep and awake, and how we survive the journey from conception to birth. I enjoy the primary care and surgical aspects of our specialty which allow for lifelong relationships with patients and families. Other than handing a couple a healthy baby, there is nothing more rewarding than helping someone reestablish her health and overcome an illness. I believe patients need to be heard, understood and treated in a compassionate and respectful manner. For a pregnancy, my goal is to provide a truly memorable and safe experience for the patient and her family. My interests include both low and high-risk obstetrics, minimally invasive surgery including vaginal hysterectomy and laparoscopic hysterectomy, family planning, basic infertility, cervical dysplasia and HPV, as well as health maintenance, menopause, and sexual disorders. I have been blessed with a wonderful, understanding wife and 5 children who are now adults. I love children and hopefully, will be blessed with grandchildren in the near future. In my free time, I enjoy photography, music, movies, traveling, getting out in nature and trying to stay in shape.
