Originally from Bethlehem, Matthew received his Bachelor of Science degree in sports medicine from Castleton State College in Vermont. He proceeded to earn his Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from Russell Sage College. He then went on to achieve his Master of Science degree in nursing – advanced practice nursing in Child Health from SUNY Stony Brook. Matthew is a member of several associations, including Children’s Oncology Group, Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses, Emergency Nursing Association, and the American Nursing Association.
Prior to joining Community Care Physicians, Matthew worked in pediatric intensive care, hematology/oncology, and pediatric emergency medicine. He also gained experience from his schooling where he learned about primary care, endocrinology, pulmonary medicine and sports medicine. Matthew chose to specialize in pediatrics so he could have the ability to create patient relationships. He advocates for those who don’t have an understanding of their health and need help making healthy choices. Matthew has a special medical interest in patient relationships, community health and wellness, and prevention. His favorite part of the job is anything in regards to pediatrics care – being able to bring reassurance to families and being a part of something that gives families ease.
In his spare time, Mathew spends his time with his family and their son. They enjoy hiking, hockey, and soccer. Physical fitness is important to him and his family, along with reading and traveling. Matthew also participates in non-for-profits, including Maddie’s Mark, Nick’s Fight to be Healed, and the Melody Center.
