WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

As a physician, I strive to create a partnership with my patients with the goal towards optimizing their medical conditions within their personal preferences to help each older adult maintain autonomy. I grew up in Central Texas with a very close relationship with my grandmother and learned from an early age to appreciate how older adults value independence.
