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 treat patients as I would want my family to be treated. I want patients to engage in their care and to be interactive with their health.

What inspired you to become a doctor?

I was in the hospital at the beginning of my freshman year of high school and my doctor was the son of my primary care doctor. He would come in and talk with me. This did make an impression on me. Then in high school, we had a career day and a woman doctor came to speak and that was it. I was lucky to have wonderful primary care doctors that treated everyone and gave good examples for me for my career.
