Philosophy of care

I try to partner with you and treat you as I would want to be treated if I were a patient. I try to present your best treatment options and then we decide together what’s best for you. It’s not a one-way street.

Why I entered medicine

I wanted to help people to live the best life they can and to remain healthy. Whenever I went to the doctor as a kid, I appreciated how they helped, and I wanted to emulate that and help others.

Community involvement

I like to cycle, and I do charity events involving cycling.

Personal interests

I enjoy road and trail cycling, both solo and in groups. I like to travel with family. Most of my family is in California, and I like to go there once a year, if possible.
