WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I was attracted to the field of medicine because its powers to heal, and I fell in love with primary care because of the opportunities to build healing relationships with patients and their families. I believe every patient's situation is unique and that health care is best delivered through a team with the patient at its center. I know i am doing my job as a primary care physician when patients feel empowered to take care of their health. I am married and have a young daughter, who is the absolute joy in our lives. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and playing the piano.
