This specialty afforded him the ability to meld all of his interests and see patients in the context of our complex and ever changing healthcare, and social system. As his career has developed he has come to realize that most of the disease he saw was in large part preventable. In particular the current obesity epidemic has been exploding with major impact on public health. This being the case Robert has recently become board certified in bariatric(weight loss) medicine by the ABOM and has integrated this into his care. With 2/3 of all adults in the US being either overweight or obese there is much work to be done. He has been quoted as saying that “If I can prevent more disease than I treat over my career, then I have done some good”. That is how he approaches his patient care and is thrilled to be part of the Crossover Health family dedicated to patient centric care. Outside of the office Robert enjoys time with family and putting into practice what he preaches. Diet and exercise are important parts of his life and attempting to lead by example he feels is an important responsibility of a physician. Additionally he is often said to have a comedic sense, and loves to find the humor in life as well. Since his children were young the family will frequent Manhattan and enjoy the educational as well as the cultural diversity offered. Having been born in the Bronx, and doing his training in NYC being at Crossover Midtown is like coming home again. He is thrilled to offer his experience to the team, and is dedicated to offer the highest level of integrative care possible to his patients.
