About me

I am originally from the beautiful city of Düsseldorf on the Rhine river in the far west of Germany.
In 2013, my wife and I moved to Berlin. Turns out, we liked it so much that we decided to stay. Both of our children were born in Berlin.

During my medical career, I was able to experience the entire range of pediatrics – from dealing with premature and newborn infants to intensive care medicine, social pediatrics and adolescent medicine. At the Charité University Clinic Berlin, I was the pediatric representative on the child protection team. The physical and psychological integrity of your child is therefore very important to me.

In 2017, I completed my training as a pediatric rheumatologist, meaning that I have specialized in diseases of the musculoskeletal system and autoimmune disorders. For me, this is one of the most exciting and diverse fields of medicine.

Another focus of my work is ultrasound diagnostics – a great technique that I have used for over 20 years to get insights into the human body – without the use of ionizing radiation and completely pain-free.

In my spare time, I volunteer to promote access to health care for refugees and undocumented migrants am involved in the medical peace organization IPPNW Germany, whose chairman I have been for the last 8 years. As a member of the German Alliance Climate Change and Health, I am working on sustainable, climate- and eco-friendly solutions in my practice and in my private life. Because I am critical of the influence of the pharmaceutical lobby on our health system, I am also a member of MEZIS – the German branch of the international „No free lunch“ movement.
