Treatment philosophy: “I believe the key to great patient care is partnership and honest communication. Good patient care has many different aspects to it, and sometimes non-medically related topics can also have a direct impact on that patient’s health and their medical options. That is why partnership is so important to me as a provider, because a good partnership can identify potential issues or obstacles to their care. This in turn leads to honest communication which can be used to help both sides understand the thoughts of the other. By doing these things we can both, together, find the best way to implement a mutual plan to help patients live their best, healthiest life.”
Special interests: “The part I enjoy the most about practicing medicine is the variety and problem-solving skills involved in it. I feel like this is why I enjoy general medicine so much, there can be numerous challenges that require creative approaches, you don’t always know what you’ll see during the day, and I get to interact with a variety of different people.”
Professional journey: “I believe my passion for medicine arose at an early age, starting with my neighbors. Many of them were in the medical field and I was always in awe of what they did and how they helped people, even in the smallest of ways. I always knew that I wanted to work to help others, but was not always sure how I could. However, through my own encounters with the medical field, I realized that I had the potential to help people in a similar way, enjoy what I do, and that I wanted to help others in the way I had been helped. This was when I was introduced to PAs. The more I learned about the role of the PA in medicine, the more I fell in love with the profession. I am ecstatic that I am now able to be a part of this great profession and medical community.”
