Daniel grew up in Montreal, graduated from McGill University Medical School, and completed his residency at McGill University – Jewish General Hospital before moving to New York to complete his fellowship at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
The son of a physician, he always knew he would pursue a career in medicine. During his residency and fellowship, Daniel faced the defining challenge of his life: his brother’s battle with cancer. Daniel stood by his brother from the moment of his diagnosis to his last breath. Through that harrowing experience, Daniel internalized lessons of empathy and compassion that guide his work to this day.

Daniel is dedicated to caring for the whole patient and educating the next generation of physicians at Harvard Medical School. He lives in the Boston area with his family.
