Most importantly, I try to establish a relationship with my patients, making them feel cared about, not just cared for. My care philosophy encompasses compassion in my treatment of acute issues, as well as promotion of a healthy lifestyle and disease prevention. I focus on communication to keep patients involved in their own health care as it is a team effort. I include patients in my thought process of their diagnoses, and I share options for treatment to work together to reach the desired goal.
Medicine is ever-changing in general, and I enjoy the continued challenge of growth and change. I connect well with pediatric and adolescent patients. I also enjoy women’s health and being able to offer health care through all phases of a patient’s life. What I love the most is connecting with my patients and making them feel like they are heard in the time I have with them and that their health matters.
Beyond caring for patients, I enjoy long distance running, traveling to places off the beaten path with my husband, and keeping up with my my two young boys!
