About Dr. Brand

As a child growing up in Massachusetts, I was positively influenced by my own pediatrician who cared deeply about his patients.

He made office visits fun for me, was a resource of valuable information and it was apparent he truly loved his career.

At a young age, I thought about a medical career. I worked part-time in high school and college at a physical rehabilitation center and suburban hospital to learn about the medical field. I provided basic assistance and skilled care to patients, performed EKGs, drew blood for lab tests and changed dressings. I also shadowed physicians to gain better insight into the care they provided and to examine their role in the health care system. During this process, I learned that I had an empathetic personality and that I enjoyed taking care of patients.

At Tufts University, I studied engineering and premedical sciences and graduated with a degree in electrical engineering. I received my MD degree from Albany Medical College and completed my Pediatric Residency at Albany Medical Center Hospital. I feel fortunate to have chosen to become a pediatrician. I have been privileged to care for many wonderful children, adolescents and their families, and I am pleased to be entrusted with their care.

As much as I love being a pediatrician, my other true calling is as a husband and father. My wife and I have been married since 1998 and have two daughters. I cherish the time I spend with my family.
