- Personal Statement
- I grew up in Long Island, and completed my undergraduate and medical education through a combined BS-MD program at Stony Brook University. Upon medical school graduation, I went on to pursue vascular surgery training as a member of the integrated vascular surgery program at the Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, NY.
I am happy to have returned to my alma mater to care for the community that raised me.
My clinical areas of expertise include open and endovascular approaches to aneurysmal disease, carotid disease, peripheral arterial disease, dialysis access, and venous disease. I am also fluent in Greek and Spanish, which hopefully opens the doors to communication with the diverse population of Long Island.
Outside of the operating room, I have been highly involved with medical student and resident education at the national level with the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS). I have served as the chair of the Medical Student Section of the SVS, and most recently as the chair of the Vascular Trainee Section of the SVS.
With respect to clinical research, my areas of interest include peripheral arterial disease in women, venous disease, and dialysis access.
I am extremely honored and excited to be a part of Stony Brook’s vascular team, and am committed to giving patients with any vascular ailment the highest quality of care possible.
