About Dr. Steve
Ever since I was a kid I wanted to be a doctor. I grew up in my dad’s pharmacy in Long Island and as soon as I was tall enough to reach the cash register I started working there. I met a lot of doctors through that business and I thought it was such a great job. You could help people, make a decent living, and make a difference in people’s lives.
I grew up and went to school to become a doctor, graduating Fordham University with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and received my medical degree from New York College of Osteopathic Medicine with honors in Osteopathic Manipulative Therapy. I completed my Emergency Medicine residency at Long Island Jewish Hospital. Eventually I went on to become an Attending Physician in the Emergency Department of St. Vincent’s Midtown Hospital in Manhattan. I also held posts in the ER of St. John’s Queens Hospital and New York Hospital Queens and was also an Assistant Clinical Professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Cornell Medical School.
