WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a board-certified endocrinologist specializing in the treatment of patients with endocrine neoplasia which includes thyroid tumors, parathyroid tumors and adrenal tumors, with a focus in thyroid cancer. In addition, I have a special interest in thyroid ultrasound and ultrasound guided fine needle aspiration and I have Endocrine Certification in Neck Ultrasound (ECNU). I believe the level and strength of the communication between a doctor and patient is fundamental to medicine, so I always try to be an active listener and make sure patients receive all the information they need to make decisions. I serve as a member of the American Thyroid Association (ATA) Patient Affairs and Education Committee. I am an active member of the ATA as well as the Endocrine Society and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologist (AACE). Outside of work, I like to spend time with family and friends, jog and play guitar.
