About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

I pursued medicine because I wanted to be a family physician. Family medicine is the only specialty that is built on a comprehensive understanding of our patients' medical, psychological, family, and social conditions. We nurture long-term family (and often) trans-generational relationships. We help patients navigate the increasingly complex medical systems when their needs exceed our expertise. We are the first physicians a patient needs to call with their medical problems. These values and attributes perfectly match my interests, skills, and foundational beliefs about medicine.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I have been an academic physician for almost my entire career. My professional time is divided among the following pursuits: caring for both healthy and complex patients, medical problem solving with our students and medical residents, and helping our hospital administration promote high quality and safe care.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I keep in touch with my adult daughters, stay physically fit, experiment with cooking many types of cuisines, read, and keep current with changes in medicine.
