Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
For someone who loves problem-solving and enjoys being surrounded by stories of humanity, medicine has been a well-chosen career path for me. As an internist I get to take care of my patients in a very wholesome manner. I get an opportunity to share in not only some of the happiest but also some of the darkest moments of my patients' lives. Understanding the human mind and body can be a daunting task, however I find my patients teaching me more about medicine every day than any book could ever do!
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am the first stop in your healthcare journey! You will always find me and my awesome staff there to help you make this journey as smooth as possible. My role as your primary care physician will be to help you make informed decisions, guided not only by your desires and preferences but also based on the science and evidence behind them. We will always make shared decisions and, therefore, I do hope that my patients take accountability for the health choices they make.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
My free time is mostly spent with my beautiful family. I enjoy playing tennis and doing other outdoor activities. Painting on canvas is one way for me to wind down a busy day. As a family we also enjoy traveling and experiencing new cultures whenever possible.
