About Me

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

I was in 5th grade and I could not decide if I wanted to co-host the Today show or become a doctor so I asked my father. He said, " Be a doctor." And that was that.

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

I like the stories I hear from patients about their lives. I chose internal medicine because of the broad scope of medical knowledge that is required to practice internal medicine.

How do you connect with your patients?

I try really hard to listen and let the patient tell the story. I learn more that way and then I can be more helpful.

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

I love running and have completed 7 marathons. I have a wonderful, supportive family that keeps me busy. I read fiction and I have been in a book club for 15 years.

What is your advice for your patients?

I try to encourage my patients to make healthy food choices, to be active, and to take care of themselves.
