Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I pursued an education in medicine because it gave me the opportunity to combine my interests in history and biology in a career with endless opportunities for personal growth, intellectual challenge and helping others manage the physical and psychological burdens of both chronic and acute illnesses.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I do my best for each patient at every visit. I take a team-based approach to care and frequently involve specialists to optimize treatment regimens for chronic illnesses.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
Outside the office, I am typically engaged in caring for my two daughters, working around the house and spending time with my wife.
