After a successful run in grade school and high school, I attended college at Syracuse University, where he met my long-time friend, and regular contributor to Your Health First, Chuck Garcia.
After Medical School, I did specialized training in Internal Medicine, Gastroenterology, and Hepatology (liver) between medical centers in New York and Nebraska. Since 1994, I have been a leader in the Texas Medical Center organizing the Liver Transplant programs at University of Texas, St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital, and The Methodist Hospital. Currently, I am the Medical Director of the Center for Liver Disease and Transplantation at The Methodist Hospital, located in the world famous Texas Medical Center.
For the past 8 years, I have hosted Your Health First, the most consumer oriented health program on radio. The opportunity to share health and wellness information with the public is a great thrill for me. As Medical Expert for KTRH, I regularly contribute to the medical news stories that are aired, working closely with the on-air hosts and reporters.
In my spare time, I enjoy making pizza, backpacking, and spending time with my family.

Swine flu outbreak? New swine flu cases have jumped from 12 cases last week to at least 145 cases, the CDC announced Thursday. Indiana health officials reported seven new cases; bringing the total to 152 cases -- and counting. The virus causing the outbreak is a swine flu bug that more easily infects humans than previous swine flu viruses in pigs. All cases this year are in people who had direct contact with live pigs. You cannot get the virus from eating pork.
