Personal Statement: I have had the extreme pleasure of watching the Internal Medicine Residency mature from one full-time faculty member (myself) in 1971 to the current status of over 15 full-time faculty, literally hundreds of volunteer teaching faculty, and a superb academic teaching clinic in a vibrant atmosphere of mutual respect and intellectual curiosity. I have always been driven by what is referred to as the "multiplier effect." It has not been enough to provide quality patient care to patients. I need to teach, and simultaneously learn, with residents and students, so that the knowledge and experience accrued can be "multiplied" and disseminated to an ever-greater number of physicians. For the highly motivated individual, I truly believe that our program represents an intellectual and academic feast.

Data Transparency and Trust: Understanding WebMD Doctor Listings and Reviews
We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.
All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.
We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
