About Me

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

Like most kids, I thought doctors were scary and mysterious.  I had nice doctors as a kid so I got over the scary part and then I wanted to understand it. 

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

I really enjoy helping my patients learn how to manage their conditions so they can be healthier and enjoy doing the things they love.  In my family there is diabetes and thyroid disease.  So naturally, I paid extra attention.  The extra attention never stopped. 

How do you connect with your patients?

I try hard to use everyday words and clear explanations.  I try to learn about patients so we can work together in creating a treatment plan they can stick with. 

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

My family, running, movies, and getting outdoors. 

What is your advice for your patients?

Don't get upset about imperfection.  Just keep trying and keep your sense of humor.
