  • Ratings & Comments from Patients
    To ensure our ratings come only from verified patients, we work with Press Ganey, a third-party organization. Press Ganey sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVHN’s behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor’s or advanced practice clinician’s communication skills. Read more about our survey.

  • Philosophy of Care

    My philosophy is to not only treat my patients, but to guide them to help themselves. I also strive to treat each individual with the same dignity and respect as I would treat my own family.

  • Why I Entered Medicine

    I have always had a passion for medicine, and I enjoy the opportunity to have relationships with my patients within the community. I find medicine to be both rewarding and challenging, as every day is different and every individual has specific needs. Through medicine I can help heal the body and the mind not only with medication, but with education and awareness. I entered medicine to know that at the end of the day, I have hopefully made a difference in someone's life and well-being. I chose sports medicine as a specialty because I understand the importance of fitness in a person's overall health. I feel I can relate to active individuals because I myself was a college athlete and continue to maintain my health through exercise. Since almost 90 percent of sports injuries do not require surgical intervention, I wanted to have a career that would allow me to give my patients a variety of treatment options.

  • Community & Charity Involvement

    I work with students and athletes at Muhlenberg College and Cedar Crest College.

  • Personal Interests

    My personal interests include spending time with my family and playing outside with my kids. I make exercise a priority through weight training and soccer leagues. I enjoy traveling and learning different cultures.
