A little about me

I am faculty and director of integrative medicine at the Mount Sinai Downtown Residency in Urban Family Medicine, and Assistant Professor at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. I am a Bravewell Fellow and Associate Fellow of the University of Arizona Program in Integrative Medicine. I am director of the pilot program of the Integrative Medicine in Residency, and am working on a project to teach integrative medicine to 3rd and 4th year medical students rotating through the family medicine clerkship. I have an integrative medicine practice at the Institute for Family Health at 17th Street, where I use the electronic health record to aid in providing integrative medicine within an underserved location.
