“As a health care practitioner I think the most important thing to consider when choosing a health care team is communication. Our goal is to allow patients to take an active role in their care and to work with them to achieve their treatment goals.”

“Being a Physician Assistant allows me to help patients to be well with an emphasis on educating. I have been blessed with many wonderful mentors, but remain most humbled by what patients have taught me through their experiences.”
