About This ProviderPrint
Why did you become a provider?
Too often, my family and friends would see their providers and leave the office not knowing what was wrong with their health or how to manage it. I want to be the provider who clearly discusses health matters with my patients. I will always listen to their concerns and do my best to give them clear answers. When they leave my office, I want them to leave with solutions, not more questions.
What qualities best describe the care you provide to your patients?
I treat everyone the way I want to be treated. I will always listen. The patient is my priority. I pledge to always work with my patients and focus on their priorities so they can enjoy better health.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
Every day, I am driven by my passion for the patients. There is no better feeling in the world than helping someone achieve better health. Every day is a new challenge with new opportunities to improve people's lives.
What is the most important message you would like to share with your patients? What would you like your patients to know about you?
I want my patients to know that they can talk to me about anything. If something is not right, know that I want to help. There are no bad questions. Also, I want my patients to know that I have been down their path too. I know some of the fears, concerns in our lives. I know some of the fears, concerns and frustrations that come from trying to manage disease. Patients need someone to be their advocate. I will be that advocate whenever they need me.
