About This ProviderPrint

Why did you become a physician/provider?

I became a provider because I have a passion for helping people and my community. I love being able to partner with people to achieve their health goals.

As a provider, what is your medical philosophy?

I always strive to put my patient and their concerns first. I hope that we can work as a team to manage health together. I believe that we can achieve this through honesty, trust, and education.

What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about?

I am passionate about preventative medicine, health care maintenance, pediatric care, and women's health.

Why did you choose your specialty?

I chose family medicine because I wanted to care for people throughout their whole lifespan and to build trusting provider-patient relationships with my patients. Family medicine allows me to treat my patients as a whole individual rather than the disease process that ails them.

What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients?

Passion, professionalism, respectfulness, patience, compassion, and empathy.

Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?

What motivates me is partnering with my patients to put the power of their health in their own hands. I enjoy using education and other tools to help patients to take charge of their health and watch them flourish.

What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?

I would like my patients to know I will take time to listen to their concerns and care for them the way that I would care for my own family. I am a caring, family-oriented individual who strives to provide a holistic approach to an individual and family's health.
