About Me

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

I have wanted to be a doctor since the age of 5.  My mom is a doctor, and I knew that her job was to help people.  Later, as a teenager, I shadowed her at work and I knew it was what I wanted to do.

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

I love treating patients in all different settings and the continuity of care that Internal Medicine provides. 

How do you connect with your patients?

I listen to them.  I get to know their lives, problems (health & otherwise). 

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

Travel, cooking, and reading.

What is your advice for your patients?

Usually in regards to diet and exercise.  I also try to speak about stress management.
