Why I Chose Medicine

As a child I was very sick, always in and out of the hospital or doctor’s office.  I had a few doctors and physician assistants that made my illness a more positive experience other than a negative one.  I in turn want to do that for others.

What do you find rewarding about your particular practice?

I enjoy educating the patient about their current issue and either resolving the issue of getting them going on the right track to resolve the issue.

Do you have a particular area of interest?

I have worked in specialty surgery and urgent care / ER since I graduated.  I am now focused on Rheumatology.  I think my surgical history enhances the care I can give to patients.
