Get to Know Me

What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

Being in FamilyPractice/Urgent Care, all conditions are addressed; some will need specialty care, some not.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I use a holistic approach. I treat the body as a union of all parts rather than many isolated systems.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

When I was a teen, I looked up to a family doctor who took care of me when I underwent hospitalization. I had interaction with the staff of the hospital and the rest is history!
