Description of Clinical Expertise

I completed a combined residency in both internal medicine and pediatrics and then a fellowship in adult rheumatology with additional pediatric rheumatology training. With this background I have created an adolescent and young adult rheumatology clinic at the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine. I work with the pediatric rheumatologists at CHOP to assure that our patients have a smooth transition to adult-centered care.

As a Co-Director of the Penn Sjogren's Syndrome Center, I have experience and special interest in caring for patients with Sjogren's Syndrome.
