Why did you become a physician/provider? I became a provider because I wanted to help people understand their health, diagnoses and why certain treatments are beneficial to them specifically. I wanted to make sure every person I came in contact with always felt heard and validated in their concerns/feelings.
As a provider, what is your medical philosophy? There is not one right answer for every single patient. For optimal care, I believe medicine needs to be individualized per patient.
What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about? I am most passionate about preventive medicine. I want to help people stay up-to-date on their health, potentially prevent certain disease states from affecting them and provide education to each patient to empower them with knowledge about their own health and prevention.
Why did you choose your specialty? I absolutely love caring for a wide age range of patients as well as an extensive range of medical diagnoses.
What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients? Individualized, thorough, thoughtful and intuitive.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day? I am motivated each day to provide the best care possible to each patient I come in contact with. I want to help them understand their diagnoses, manage their health in the best way possible and leave a positive, lasting impact on each person.
What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice? I thoroughly enjoy my job educating and helping each individual person. I strive to be a great listener and always individualize my care to patients' specific needs.
