WHERE I PROVIDE CARE
Profile
ABOUT ME

I am an adult and pediatric rheumatologist who specializes in inflammatory/autoimmune disorders such as Lupus, rheumatoid arthritis/juvenile arthritis, vasculitis, and sarcoidosis, among others. I also have a special interest in using bedside ultrasound. Ultrasound is a non-invasive tool that improves our ability to make a diagnosis and monitor treatment response in real-time. My greatest joy in medicine is getting to know patients and their families over a long period of time, and helping to care for chronic and complex diseases. As rheumatologists, we are blessed to have new classes of medications that, in some cases, can make patient's feel better and improve both their quality and quantity of life.

Clinical Focus and Research
MY RESEARCH INTERESTS

I am a researcher specializing in clinical pharmacology and precision medicine. Our research has shown us that the current "one size fits all" approach to treatment does not work for many patients. My research is aimed at determining the reasons why some patients either do not respond to a medication or have unacceptable side effects- with the ultimate goal to determine the right medication, at the right dose, for each individual patient.
