Why did you become a physician/provider?
I became a provider to use my knowledge and experience to help others achieve their greatest state of health.
As a provider, what is your medical philosophy?
I believe in treating the patient as a person rather than treating them as a medical issue or disease.
What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about?
I am most passionate about acute illnesses and urgent cares. I love the element of surprise and enjoy a challenge, as you never know what urgent concerns a patient may present with.
Why did you choose your specialty?
I chose family medicine because of the variety of disease processes across the lifespan.
What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients?
The quality of care I provide is compassionate and evidence-based. If I don't know the answers, I will strive to find the answers through teamwork and collaboration.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
As a provider, my motivation is simply the ability to help others each and every day. I love being able to answer patient and family member's questions in order to provide a better understanding and ease their concerns.
What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?
The most important thing patients should know is that I always want what is best for them, as well as their families. Trust and allow me to help you in the best way that I can.
