Philosophy of care

I provide quality care by applying clinical skill and listening to patients and sometimes their surrogates. Active engagement allows me to address existing concerns and help the patient avoid or mitigate future issues.  A multidisciplinary collaborative approach that is attentive to the patient narrative is most effective at providing quality holistic care.

Why I entered medicine

I entered medical practice out of a desire to have a positive influence on the health care needs of others. The focus of my practice has evolved over the years, but that fundamental theme remains unchanged.

Community involvement

My professional community involvement includes work with legislators to improve access to care in Pennsylvania. My charity work includes Habitat for Humanity and decades of support of a pediatric diabetes camp known as Camp Setebaid in Union County.

Personal interests

My personal interests center around time with family. I gain the most enjoyment from outdoor activities, including kayaking, hiking, camping and mountain biking. I enjoyed hang gliding, but gave it up with the growth of my family. I find gardening to be a rewarding escape. My professional interests include exploring non-traditional ways of providing access to palliative care in rural hospitals lacking services.
