Philosophy of care

Communication is key to my philosophy of care. I always want to make sure my patients understand their diagnosis, their options for treatment, and what the final treatment plan will be. I find this important so I know my patients are leaving my office with full understanding of their urologic issues.

Why I entered medicine

I loved science and math growing up. I had the opportunity to shadow physician assistants and I loved every aspect of medicine they participated in. I thoroughly enjoy helping people. I am very hands-on and being able to participate in surgery is a great outlet for me to do this.

Community involvement

I grew up in the Lehigh Valley and I am so pleased to be able to give back to the community. I participated in Habit for Humanity and other fundraising events while in physician assistant school. I found these to be very rewarding experiences.

Personal interests

I enjoy playing sports because I grew up with them. I also love to run. It's not only good for your health, but a great stress reliever. I love to spend time with family and friends and I always try to find time to read and listen to music.
