WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

From the age of seven, as I played “doctor” to my dolls, I knew I wanted to spend my life caring for people. As a primary care physician specializing in both internal medicine and pediatrics, I see patients of all ages and am able to care for multiple generations within families. I am also uniquely equipped to follow pediatric patients with chronic childhood illnesses, including autism and rare genetic diseases, and provide continuity of care as they transition into adulthood. In addition to my clinic work, I am involved in community based health care endeavors, such as providing sports physicals and screening mammographies. The most gratifying parts of my work are the close, caring relationships I form with my patients, and the opportunity to promote health in my own community.
