Why did you become a physician/provider? I am particularly interested in the science behind medicine and being able to communicate that to patients/families.

As a provider, what is your medical philosophy? I believe it's important to have communication with patients, as well as a multidisciplinary team involved in their care.

Why did you choose your specialty? I enjoy both the cognitive and procedural sides of internal/hospital medicine. 

What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients? Patients will appreciate my compassionate and professional demeanor. 

Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day? The most rewarding part of my career is being able to talk to patients and help them in time of need.

What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice? I want patients to know I am always happy to educate them about their disease process(es) and help them take ownership of their ailment(s).
