I was born and raised in metro Detroit and graduated from The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (1988). A Masters Degree from Wayne State University (1990) followed while working in basic science research and clinical laboratories in the field of Bone Marrow Transplantation at the Detroit Medical Center. I eventually returned to the University of Michigan and their General Clinical Research Center in the Human Applications Laboratory. My medical degree is from Wayne State University School of Medicine (2006). My residency took place at William Beaumont Hospital — Royal Oak- Internal Medicine and Pediatrics (2010) where my peers and program directors selected me as a chief pediatric resident. Practice commenced as a physician in a Beaumont affiliated practice and one year later I joined Haller & Hug, where I have been happily practicing since August 2011. I am board certified in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and a member of the American College of Physicians. Personally, I am blessed with a great family, highlighted by my bewitching wife and my absolutely delightful son.
