I obtained my undergraduate and medical degrees at Yale University. I trained in otolaryngology at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York, and was a fellow in pediatric otolaryngology in Cincinnati, Ohio under Dr. Robin Cotton. On the attending staff at Mt. Sinai since 1994, I am a clinical professor of both otolaryngology and pediatrics at the Ichan School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai, and director of Pediatric Otolaryngology at the Mt. Sinai Hospital. I am the author of a book and more than sixty articles and chapters in my field, and I have edited two multi-authored textbooks.

I am trained in all areas of pediatric otolaryngology. Common procedures include tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and insertion of ear tubes. Furthermore, I manage a variety of congenital and acquired conditions of the head and neck, including choanal atresia, neck masses, feeding and respiratory problems, sinusitis, airway obstruction and more complex ear disease.

I have been involved with computers in medicine for many years. In addition to my book on medical websites, I have authored a number of articles and chapters on this subject. I have served as the Internet editor for the AMA journal Archives of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and as the chairman of the technology committees of both our national ENT Academy (the AAOHNS) and our national pediatric ENT society (ASPO). I was also the president of the American Bronchoesophagological Association for 2010-2011.

I lecture widely on such topics as the online patient-doctor relationship, Internet publishing in medicine, and the development and role of Web sites in medical practice. Click here to see my full CV.
