    Physician Information

    I am Division Chief of the Pediatric Pulmonology Center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center and Barnabas Health Medical Group. I am an alumnus of Rutgers (former UMDNJ) New Jersey Medical School and completed my Pediatric Residency in 1988, and Chief Resident 1989. I completed my Pediatric Pulmonology fellowship at Columbia Presbyterian Babies Hospital in 1993 (now Morgan Stanley Children’s Hospital).

    I have an interested Asthma, Pneumonias, Aerodigestive Disorders, Chronic lung Disease, chronic respiratory failure in children with neuromuscular disease and special need children with tracheostomies and ventilators. I have expertise in pulmonary lung function and Pediatric Flexible Bronchoscopy. Our Pulmonary Division has a Cystic Fibrosis Center and Pediatric Sleep Center.

    I have a special interest in Pediatric Asthma community medical education and was awarded a several grants from: the Healthcare Foundation of NJ, sanofi-aventis, Hugh Evans Legacy, Angel Family Foundation, Hoffman La Roche and Aetna for the Children’s RESPIRA bilingual Education program in 2006 for which I was the Founder and Director of the RESPIRA Program at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. The program was designed to teach Hispanic/Latino families about Asthma providing home visits and empowering parents in their child’s asthma care. The program provided services in 6 counties in the State of New Jersey and was successful in decreasing ED visits and hospitalizations. We collected data and presented our results in several medical conferences. RESPIRA was recognized throughout the Hispanic/Latino organizations, faith based organization, schools, hospitals and healthcare providers in all counties. We also provided education to the teachers and school nurses about asthma. It was also recognized by Aetna Voices of Health. As a result of this experience, I have continued to provide Asthma health education for families. I have been involved with American Lung Association.

    I was Board of Directors for the New Jersey-American Lung Association (ALA), and National Assembly member of the National American Lung Association. I was a proud recipient of the 2000 Bernard Gregory Award for Cultural Diversity given by the National American Lung Association by providing Inner City Asthma Education to the community using my RESPIRA model. I was also awarded the Emily Bissell Award 2004 from the American Lung Association of NJ. In addition, I chaired the Pediatric Section of the New Jersey Thoracic Society until 2008. I am a Fellow member of the American Thoracic Society, American Academy of Pediatrics and American College of Chest Physicians. In addition, I have been recognized by Best Doctors in America, Top Pediatrician award and recently Castle Connelly Top Doctors award.
