Philosophy of care

I believe in taking care of you with a unique plan for your lifestyle. Especially in the field of rheumatology, no two patients are alike. My goal is to get you back to doing what you love to do.

Why I entered medicine

I have seen the impact of uncontrolled rheumatic diseases on a patient's quality of life. In the last few decades especially, there have been many new therapies that can significantly lessen pain and improve function. For that reason I feel lucky to be in medicine now.

Personal interests

I enjoy spending free time with family and friends.
