Physician Detail


Dr. Imundo's mentor Dr. Jerry Jacobs established Pediatric Rheumatology in 1960 at Columbia under the mentorship of the Chairman of Medicine, Charles Regan and the Chairman of Adult Rheumatology, Charles Christian. Dr. Jacobs wrote the first textbook in the field "Pediatric Rheumatology for the Practitioner" and defined new entities which today have genetic, cellular and molecular foundations. Dr. Jacobs' former fellows, among them, Dr. Imundo, wrote the continuing textbook "Arthritis in Children and Adolescents" (I. Szer, ed.).

At Columbia University she was appointed both Division Director and Fellowship Director shortly after completing her Chief Residency and Fellowship. Under her leadership, her Division of Pediatric Rheumatology (1997-2014) expanded to provide care for thousands of children with complex and often mysterious Auto-Immune and Rheumatic diseases both on the inpatient and on the outpatient service, a record unmatched in the USA. She continues in the footsteps of Dr. Jacobs defining new entities and conducting cutting edge research in the efficacy of molecularly specific medications. Like Dr. Jacob's before her, Dr. Imundo is available continuously to treat the sick children of our Tri-State area, and like Dr. Jacob's before her, Dr. Imundo's patients become part of her family, and she very frequently part of theirs.
