About me

I’m a Clinical Professor of Medicine & Rheumatology in New York City. Previously, I was a Clinical Professor of Medicine/Rheumatology at top US Medical Schools such as Weill Cornell and New York University (NYU).

I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Ioannina Medical School in Greece and became a Research Scholar at the Northwestern University College of Medicine in Chicago. I completed my Internal Medicine Residency at the Brown University in Providence and my Rheumatology Fellowship at the Hospital for Special Surgery and New York Presbyterian/Cornell Campus.

I’m an expert in the treatment of autoimmune disorders including Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic arthritis, gout, osteoarthritis, myositis, SLE-lupus, Sjogren’s syndrome, Vasculitis, Pulmonary Hypertension, Scleroderma, Osteoporosis, Auto-inflammatory Syndromes and Adult Still’s Disease. I have published extensively in peer-reviewed journals and medical textbooks and have served as a Clinical Investigator in multiple, international, randomized controlled trials. I have also served as an ad hoc reviewer and editorial board member in peer-reviewed rheumatology journals and am a frequently invited speaker in national and international medical conferences.
