Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I chose medicine because I have a fascination with how the mind and body work. As I went through schooling, I learned how much I enjoyed working with patients to accomplish individual goals and, in particular, working on their preventive care. With Sports Medicine, I can work to keep patients healthy and feel fulfilled when together we get them back to their activities after proper rehab. Working with my patients to become more healthy is the most fulfilling and gratifying part of my job. This is what drives me to continuing working hard for my patients.
What I want my patients to know about me:
You should have a special relationship with your provider as this is a time you may need to address some very difficult or personal issues. As your physician, I hope that I can be that provider for you. I want the best for my patients and will do my best to spend as much time with you as necessary to help you accomplish your goals. I will work hard to provide the best care and most personal experience you can have as we address your needs.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
I enjoy staying active, exploring new places, spending time with my family and my dog. Hiking, skiing, and traveling are some of my favorite activities. I also take great joy in home renovations or other DIY projects.
