I strive to be a physician patients can get to know and trust, combining awareness and application of rapidly evolving medical knowledge with an ability to communicate this to my patients.

After a traditional liberal arts education, where I majored in English with a focus on modernist literature, I considered a number of career options. Eventually, I decided on a career in medicine for two reasons – lifelong learning and daily challenge of patient care.

Clinical interest for patients

While I've practiced both ER and post-acute care medicine, I've spent the majority of my career focusing on hospital medicine. I find hospitalist work to be extremely challenging and stimulating, given the high acuity along with the complexity and diversity of clinical issues with which hospitalists are faced.
