Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:
I enjoy serving humanity and giving back to our community. I love learning about the sciences and applying this knowledge to provide excellent patient care. What was appealing about choosing a career as a family physician? A family physician is there with you every step of the way in your life journey, sharing in your joys and triumphs, heartaches, and providing hope and comfort during difficult times. I am passionate about keeping patients healthy through the promotion of preventive care, immunizations and a healthy lifestyle (i.e., exercise, nutrition, yoga, meditation, tai chi).
What I want my patients to know about me:
I am dedicated to providing high-quality, compassionate care encompassing a broad spectrum of services, including adolescent, adult and geriatric care; health and wellness; immunizations; pediatrics; and women's health care. It is important to me that I communicate with patients effectively, work together to design a personalized action plan, establish long-range health goals and provide patient education. I like to partner with patients to help them cultivate and achieve a holistic lifestyle balance with a goal of total well-being in mind, body and spirit.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients:
When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy meditation, traveling, tennis, pool, table tennis, running 5Ks, going to the gym, movies and Toastmasters. Proud to say I'm originally from Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, and am a passionate Philadelphia sports fan!
