About Me

The greatest honor one can achieve in one’s work is the acceptance of your service by another. This philosophy, shared with me early in my education, has rung true during my work among many communities here in the US and abroad. I spend the majority of my time interacting with patients as a listener – seeing if I can gather the wishes and goals one has and be a guide on the path towards them. I also have worked to apply public health methods and useful technology to one’s care plan as a means to achieve the best health possible while avoiding financial waste and/or a loss of time. My aspiration as a physician is to hear back from my patients and their inner circle about how I did and what I can improve upon as a member of their wellness team.
