About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

As a child, I had to go to the doctor a fair amount for myself or along with my mom and grandmother. Often the interactions with the doctors were not pleasant. I told my mom I was going to be a doctor that treated her patients better and with kindness always.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I work very hard to take excellent care of my patients and to treat everyone like I would want myself or my family to be treated.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

When I am not seeing patients, I am trying to keep up with husband, step son, step daughter and our cockapoo Puppy!
