I am an internist at Internal Medicine Associates in Farmington, Connecticut.

Research Interests:

I have done research in the domain of residency program quality improvement. I most recently studied patients lost to follow-up after residents completed their training program in order to improve this process in the residency program. The study was published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine and presented at the Society of General Internal Medicine National Meeting in 2010.
