Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is a patient-centered approach, focused on the patient’s concerns with a specific emphasis on functional ability and quality of life. My method involves utilizing a physical examination, imaging and diagnostic testing to uncover the underlying cause of the patient’s ailment or decline in function. My role is to provide the patient with education and information regarding their specific disease process as well as treating the patient with medications, injections or therapy, with the goal of restoring function and quality of life while minimizing pain.

Why I entered medicine

I wanted to be able to make significant and meaningful contributions to society on a daily basis, by optimizing people’s ability to function and enjoy life.

Personal interests

In my personal time, I enjoy fitness and travel.
