I graduated in Medicine in 1986 and acquired my Specialization in Pediatrics in 1990 and in Neonatology in 1994 from University of Florence.
I started to work at Meyer hospital of Firenze in 1993 in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and then I moved in 2000 to the Pediatrics and Neonatology Unit of the S.M. Annunziata Hospital of Bagno a Ripoli (Florence) where I still work.
During this long period of time I can say that I have studied and worked in the field of Pediatrics and Neonatology every day of my life. As a result, I am accustomed to dealing with many pediatric and neonatal problems. During my studies and medical practice I have gained a good knowledge of the English medical language because I have always studied using the English medical papers and then, as a pediatrician, using professional medical updating web sites as subscriber for many years (Uptodate, Medical Consult, Clinicalkey Pedialink, Pediatric Care Online).
I am also a Member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.
