Practice philosophy: Health is hard work. As part of your health care team, I enjoy forming a lasting connection as we work together to meet your goals.
If I wasn't a physician, I would be a: medical interpreter, because I love working with people, languages, and learning about other cultures.
My patients have taught me: that every patient has a story to tell. Actively listening is the best way I can honor your trust in my care.
One challenge of this career that I enjoy is: the amazing breadth and diversity of family medicine! From preventive health visits, to treating patients with a sore throat or a chronic disease like diabetes, or even attending childbirth... I am most fulfilled when I’m present for all the important steps in your health and life journey.
I became a physician because: I learned a lot from my parents growing up around the kitchen table with a nurse and a pharmacist. They instilled in me a love for learning and for helping others; I later discovered this fit perfectly with a career as a family medicine doctor.
My personal health goal is: to be open to new ways to stay active. It’s human nature to fall into a routine, but making a change can be refreshing and healthy in the long run. Oh, and I’d like to drink more water throughout the course of my day.
