About Me

My interest in geriatrics is inspired by the stories and experiences of my grandparents and other grand-aunts and grand-uncles. WWII veterans, business owners, immigrants, and yacht builders: they each have had a fascinating story to tell. Being a geriatrician has helped me turn my appreciation for my family into a career where I help older adults live their lives to the fullest. I enjoy focusing on quality of life with my patients by discussing goals and priorities at every visit.

Clinical Focus and Research
My Research Interests

I have an academic interest in patient and family education and strive to help my patients make informed decisions about every aspect of their care, taking into account their personal preferences and priorities. Part of my work includes perioperative care, transitions of care between hospital, nursing facility, and home, and education on delirium identification and management.
