About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I chose to pursue a career in medicine to help people and give them hope. I realized from a young age that I had a love for people and an interest in improving the quality of their lives as they struggled with illness.


What I want my patients to know about me:

I consider myself a partner in helping my patients navigate their health challenges. I am easy to get along with, and constantly improving my general knowledge base.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I spend time with my family. I love reading a good autobiography and keeping up with the latest tech news.
