As a provider treating patients with seizures, I have come to understand the most important aspect of a physician patient relationship is trust. I approach patient care as a team and patient advocate – through listening, learning my patient’s story, and understanding each patient’s values and goals.

- Clinical interest for patients
I have many clinical interests. My focus includes surgical epilepsy and surgical evaluation for patients living with medication resistant seizures. I have experience guiding invasive epilepsy surgeries as well as programming neuromodulation devices (vagus nerve stimulation - VNS and responsive nerve stimulation - RNS). I am interested promoting quality of life measures and incorporating aspects of integrative medicine.
