Why did you become a physician/provider? As a kid I was terrified of going to my provider's office. I decided when I grew up I wanted to become a nurse practitioner and show that going to your healthcare provider's office can be something you are comfortable doing.
As a provider, what is your medical philosophy? Everyone deserves healthcare.
What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about? The type of care that interests me most is the care that will keep you coming to see me! We will work together as a team on your healthcare!
Why did you choose your specialty? I enjoy caring for patients of all ages, and in family medicine I am able to do that.
What qualities best describe the care you provide your patients? Honest, caring, non-judgmental, team approach.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day? What motivates me is the desire to make a patient better, happier and feel comfortable coming to me with their medical concerns.
What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice? I enjoy making patients laugh and want them to feel relaxed and trust me with their healthcare. Laughter is one of the best forms of medicine!
