About Me

I spent a fair amount of time as a patient growing up. This showed me the impact (for better or worse) a physician can have on a patient’s health. Being a patient is a universal experience. As doctors, we need to bring those recollections to our patient care interactions.

I like to encourage patients to learn about their health conditions. I involve them in decision-making for chronic health conditions and preventative care. I want to encourage the atmosphere of partnership in health care.

What brings me the most satisfaction about my day is when I’m able to meet patients “where they are” — not just from a health standpoint, but from a social, financial and emotional standpoint, too. It’s also great when I can see patients make positive changes in their lives and reduce their need for medication.
