My approach to patient care starts with recognizing the multidimensional nature of each patient I have the opportunity to help. In so doing I aspire to convey my own unique personality and clinical approach to make this a meaningful interaction—not just a medical visit. I incorporate the diverse cultural, religious, and social backgrounds of my patients with my own training to hone in on my patients’ needs while still adhering to the first rule of medicine to “do no harm”. Beyond simply physical health, I try to promote the emotional, psychological, and social aspects of well-being for myself and for my patients.
Guided by my value of compassion, I reflect often on the personal and professional development I can undertake to enhance the quality of care I provide. I focus on the spirit of patient collaboration and shared decision-making while applying evidence-based medicine to address specific individual and situational needs. I strive to enter and maintain an air of warmth and positivity into each room I enter. I believe this personal approach leads to fostering trust and the best outcomes for my patients.
I love the outdoors and action sports. I really enjoy skiing, rafting, surfing, snorkeling and am currently looking to play pickle ball any chance I can get!
