My father was a high school biology and math teacher and my mother was a nurse. I knew from an early age that education and the value of lifelong learning was essential in life. Even when finances were tough due to pay freezes, taxes, and commuter costs my parents made sure I could get the best education possible.
As a result, I was valedictorian of my graduating class at Nyack High School and had the chance to pursue medicine as a career. I spent my undergraduate years at Colgate University for my pre-med program as a biology major before moving on to the State University of New York at Buffalo for medical school. Upon graduation I became David M. Kenton M.D. I spent my internship and residency at the University of Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital from July 1979 to June 1982. My cardiology fellowship was at Georgetown University from July 1982 to June 1984 and shortly thereafter I went into private practice.
I’m proud to share my passion for learning with others.
