WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a surgeon, I focus on providing evidence-based care with compassion and integrity. Supporting and guiding families through challenging hospitalizations is very rewarding for me. I chose trauma and critical care because I enjoy taking care of the body as a whole. Trauma surgery is a unique field that requires quick thinking, multitasking, and attention to multiple injuries at once. I enjoy the challenges that arise in this setting. I also love to teach and mentor residents as they discover themselves as physicians.
