  • Bio

    I am a board-certified Interventional Radiologist, and my interests are in primary aldosteronism (Conn's syndrome, uterine fibroid disease, IVC filter retrieval, minimally invasive organ biopsy, and tumor embolization. I graduated from Rutgers New Jersey Medical School with the distinction of being inducted into Alpha Omega Alpha, the nation’s only medical honors society. I completed surgical internship at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and completed my Diagnostic Radiology residency and Interventional Radiology fellowship at the University of Chicago.

    I joined the faculty at Loma Linda University Medical School in California prior to returning to my roots in New Jersey.  I am actively involved in the training of our future diagnostic and interventional radiology physicians as a Clinical Assistant Professor of Radiology and Medicine at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. I have presented my academic work at national and international radiology meetings. I was recognized by my peers as a Top Doctor in NJ Monthly magazine in 2020. I am a member of American College of Radiology, Medical Society of NJ, and Middlesex County Medical Society.

    Leadership roles that I currently serve include the Chair of Radiology at St. Michael’s Medical Center in Newark, NJ and the Chair of the Quality Committee for my radiology practice. I volunteer my time as a trustee for the Alumni Association of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School and as a kindergarten class parent for the Livingston Huaxia Chinese School.

    Philosophy of Care:

    I believe in patient-centered care, and I believe that knowledge empowers my patients. I counsel patients on their options ranging from an aggressive approach to conservative management. During the procedure, I am very attentive to pain control and the patient experience. Although the minimally invasive procedures I perform are routine for my staff and me, I recognize that any procedure causes anxiety for my patients. I find that such face-to-face time with my patients prior to procedures lowers anxiety and increases their satisfaction and improves outcomes.
