About This ProviderPrint
Why did you become a provider?
My father taught me that medicine is a ministry, and I wanted to help people. I also find it to be very challenging.
As a provider, what is your medical philosophy?
I work for my patients. It is my job to offer advice and recommendations to help them recover from illness and improve their health.
What type of care/clinical interests are you most passionate about?
My passion is working with patients who suffer from alcohol and drug addiction. Seeing people recover and turn their lives around is an amazing thing to watch.
Why did you choose your specialty?
Family medicine allows me to treat patients of all ages, and with all conditions. A disease or illness can affect the entire family, which is why a family physician can often help in ways others can't. I enjoy building those relationships with families.
What qualities best describe the care you provide to your patients?
I always do my best to provide care with empathy, compassion, honesty, and respect.
Being a healthcare provider, what drives/motivates you each day?
Knowing that I may be able to help someone every day.
What is the most important thing patients should know about you and your practice?
I am here to serve my patients. Without them, what I do would be meaningless.
