  • Internal Medicine

In my career, I've been fortunate to have positions that allowed me the opportunity to teach and lead young physicians to careers in primary care. I strive to continually improve our understanding of the science behind good health, and I've learned that each patient brings their own values, experiences, and health choices to the table. By being mindful of this and truly collaborating with each patient based on their individual needs, we can build and support a holistic health plan that works. Thank you for letting me join you on your health journey.
