Philosophy of care

I strive to provide compassionate, quality, patient-centered care. I make sure to listen and fully understand each patient's needs and concerns regarding their condition and treatment, because doing so helps the patient establish and achieve treatment goals. I find great satisfaction in improving a patient's quality of life and getting them back (through effective disease management) to the activities they previously enjoyed. Rheumatic autoimmune conditions are often complex and chronic, so developing a long-term, trusting physician-patient relationship is paramount to treatment success.

Why I entered medicine

My interest in medicine was evident early in my life. My desire to become a physician peaked during my pharmacy education and continued as a practicing pharmacist; I realized I wanted to play a larger role in the overall care of patients. During my medical training, I became intrigued by the nature and complexities of various autoimmune rheumatic conditions. I decided to become a rheumatologist to help patients better understand and optimally manage their disease and live their best possible lives.

Personal interests

I enjoy cooking, traveling, sports and spending time with my family and friends
