I enjoy getting to know my patients personally, beyond just their blood pressure and lab tests. I think that helps me take better care of them. I encourage my patients to prevent medical problems, whenever possible, through exercise, healthy lifestyle and appropriate screening. When my patients do get sick, I am there to help to diagnose the problem as quickly as possible so that together we can chart a path back to health.
My husband is also a physician, and we have two beautiful children.
