Why did you become a provider?
To improve the outcomes and experience of hospitalized patients and their families. I also wanted to bring competent and compassionate care to the bedside, as not all providers have a bedside manner that translates well to patients or their families.

As a provider, what is your medical philosophy?
To provide the highest quality care for each patient, each time. I believe in not only seeing the patient as a patient but also a human being.

What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients?
Compassionate, high-quality, evidence-based and dignified care.

Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
My patients. Being able to help them in a time of need drives me to put everything I have into the care I provide. I'm devoted to putting my patients first.

What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?
I work for you. Therefore, I will always respect your wishes and value your opinions. I strive to provide ethical, honest, evidence-based, compassionate care.
