Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I wanted to make a difference in people's lives. I also like science and learning. So, this, combined with the examples of my great grandfather, a family physician, and my father, a dentist, led me to accept the challenge of going into the medical profession.
What I want my patients to know about me:
I appreciate the opportunity to be part of my patient's lives--hearing their joys and concerns. I work with my patients to understand what is important to them so that we can decide together on the best approach to improving health. A healthy lifestyle is the best "medicine", but when medicine is truly needed, I use the least amount that does the job.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I am honored to lead our WellSpan Medical Group. We are privileged to serve the people of south central PA. When not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I especially love to travel and eat good food.
