WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I have always loved science and medicine gives me a way to pursue that interest while helping people at the same time. The best part of my job is getting to know my patients and coming up with plans together that will help them feel better and stay healthy.  My three daughters, son, and now grandchildren have given me insight into the ups and downs of parenting and the special privilege of caring for other people’s children.  I love to help people quit smoking, get their cholesterol under control and conquer any other health-related problem that comes their way. As your primary care physician, it will be my pleasure to make medicine less frightening and easier to understand. In the past, I spent eight years in Madrid and now speak fluent Spanish and enjoy working with Spanish-speaking patients.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

As a medical student in Madrid, Spain, I was part of a group doing research into how genes affect the way your body handles cholesterol. We looked at how changes in diet can affect people differently depending on their specific genes. The long-term goal of this research is to develop treatments for high cholesterol more personalized for each patient.
