Why did you want to become a doctor?

To make a real impact on people's lives, and I do every day as a hospital physician. Most of the time, I am able to make people happy when they go home.

What sets you apart from other doctors in your field?

Because of our unique practice setup, I have no time constraints at work so can spend a few minutes or an hour with a patient if they need that. This is very therapeutic for patients and I really get to know them. They recognize me on the streets of Brooklyn!

What are your 5 tips for living longer? 

  1. Try to be honest. Dishonesty will kill you.
  2. Move out of the city. There's less stress there.
  3. Don't focus on your appearance. Embrace your age. (You'll never be perfect, so why try so hard?)
  4. Be happy with what you have and don't chase wealth/men. It's a losing battle.
  5. Don't be a hypochondriac or your imagination may become reality.
