Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
Honestly, I cannot pinpoint exactly why I chose to pursue a medical degree. I cannot recall ever thinking I would do anything else. I chose to specialize in primary care and urgent care medicine because I found during medical school that I enjoyed taking care of patients of all ages and diagnosing and handling all different types of medical conditions and performing a variety of different procedures. I enjoy the personal relationships you are able to develop with a patient or a whole family over long periods of time as their primary care physician and I enjoy the challenge of making more rapid assessments and caring for many more acute problems and injuries in the urgent care setting.
What I want my patients to know about me:
Although they are not able to make an appointment with me in the urgent care setting, a patient seeing me for any encounter, even a one-time urgent care visit, can expect that my priority is always to provide them with the highest quality of evidence-based medical care that is personalized to their needs.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
When I am not seeing patients, I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, and traveling.
