What is your philosophy of care?
Always treat patients how you would treat your loved ones
Why did you want to become a doctor?
I have always had the strong desire to help those around me. Practicing medicine allows me to do this to the fullest extent.
What are your sub-specialties and health interests in regard to your patients?
Adolescent health has always been a passion of mine. I think that all patients should know at least the basics when it comes to how our bodies function. This education should begin in the adolescent years. I love to spend time educating patients, and I pride myself in taking time to answer their questions, so that they leave the office well informed.
How to you maintain a healthy work/life balance?
I have a career that I truly enjoy and I surround myself with people I love. It doesn’t get much better than that.
What are your hobbies and interests outside the office?
I love traveling out of the country, but my goal is to visit all of the United States National Parks. I enjoy anything involving the great outdoors.
