About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

Helping people understand themselves, what allows us to enjoy each day of life we are given, and how to find and understand the curves that allow us to continue to enjoy life.

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

The chance to work in a field with challenging diagnoses that offers a chance to make long-term relationships with patients, while also serving a pivotal role in decision making in hospital and ICU settings. 

How do you connect with your patients?

I show them that they aren't just another patient; I show them I have time for them, show them that I'm really listening to all of their problems - not just medical - and relate to them in a personal level outside of our doctor-patient relationship. 

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

Biking, travel, jogging, reading, hiking, and fitness. 

What is your advice for your patients?

A healthy lifestyle with proper diet and regular exercise is the best medicine of all.
