About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I had a natural interest in the sciences and positive experiences with physicians. This led to an interest in learning how to help people from the medical perspective.

What I want my patients to know about me:

My first priority is making sure my patients feel like they are being listened to and understand what and why certain treatments are being recommended.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I love to go camping in my 36-foot travel trailer.
