I am a board-certified physician and regional medical director for the Allina northwest region, specializing in family medicine. My professional interests include preventive health, chronic disease care, geriatric care and many office procedures.
I offer face-to-face virtual visits for follow-up care. This is a convenient type of appointment where you meet with me virtually, right from your mobile device or computer.
Hometown: Buffalo, MN
Best part of my work: The relationships developed while sharing information to help people navigate and personalize their health care.
Why I became a physician: My mother got me thinking about becoming a physician early in life. I've been involved with health care since middle school. I view my work as a calling.
What I tell my friends and family: Practice simple prevention basics.
How I spend my free time: Family events, church, theater, concerts, sailing.
What patients say about me: Be thorough, listen, provide guidance, allow choice.
Additional info: After years of hospital, obstetrics and emergency care, with the development of a hospitalist service for inpatient care at Buffalo, I no longer practice at the hospital. I am still pleased to see outpatient clinic visits for people of all ages. I serve half time as Regional Medical Director for Allina Health and half time as an outpatient physician.
