He enjoys caring for both children and adults, and he focuses on preventive care and those diseases that can shorten lives. His areas of interests are diabetes management, heart disease and stroke prevention. He has been married to Lillian Ferdinands, MD, for more than 25 years and is the proud father of four children.
