Philosophy of care

My philosophy includes personalized care to provide you the best treatment, as well as the most economical and convenient care to help improve your life. I am honest with prognosis and treatment outcomes and believe that informed patients and families can determine which medical interventions they want to pursue. I believe in local medicine and that a healthy community is a thriving community.

Why I entered medicine

I trained as a biomedical engineer, but really wanted to help people directly. I have an interest in health care economics and public health, and those principles helped me realize I needed to be on the frontlines, talking to patients and helping my community.

Community involvement

I have volunteered at local free clinics.

Personal interests

I split my spare time among raising my family, health care economics, football and basketball.
