  • Profile

My interest in and exposure to veterinary medicine occurred early in life as my father was a large animal veterinarian. I graduated from the College of Veterinary Medicine at Cornell University, in 1982 and began working at Nassau Veterinary Clinic. In 1985, I accepted a partnership position. My current professional interests include dentistry and internal medicine. Currently, I am pursuing certification in advanced veterinary dentistry. The field of advanced veterinary dentistry includes root canal therapy or crowns to save important teeth, periodontic surgery to prevent infection and tooth loss and orthodontics to eliminate abnormally positioned teeth from causing self trauma.

I am a member of the American Veterinary Dental Society, American Veterinary Medical Association, New York State and Capital District Veterinary Societies, and the American Animal Hospital Association. My professional goal is to provide progressive, high quality dental and medical care for your pet in a caring environment.

My wife, Margaret, and I have a daughter Erica and a son Glenn. We have multiple pets including dogs, cats and fish. I am interested in outdoor activities such as hiking, biking, swimming, camping and nature study. I am particularly interested in botany and birding. I am a member of the East Greenbush School District Budget Review and Advisory Committee.
