I am an internal medicine doctor with interests in preventive care and chronic diseases like depression, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and asthma. I also work with patients on PrEP treatment, and I offer face-to-face virtual visits for follow-up care.
Practice philosophy: I am committed to accessible and quality health care for all. I see each patient as an individual, and I believe that health is your entire well-being: physical, mental and emotional, along with your relationships and your living situation.
I enjoy primary care because: it involves long-term relationships with patients. You have to earn patients’ trust, and some of what you know about a patient can really help in treatment. It is not just one size fits all.
I became a physician because: I love the art and science of medicine. The art is what happens when you get to know a person over time. It is about relationship building and communication. You combine that with the science of treatment and recognize that not everything has an exact answer.
If I wasn't a physician, I would be a: dancer.
One of the challenges of this career that I enjoy is: the weight of the responsibility. You are in a position of trust with patients. It’s a privilege to get a perspective on peoples’ lives and be able to help them.
My patients have taught me: that everyone has a story and someone needs to tell it. Patients often need a safe place to tell their story, get guidance and talk about personal health concerns.
The best thing I have done for my health is: meditation and yoga. Take the time to slow down.
