I believe that taking the time to listen to my patient and their family helps me better understand their concerns. I am a proponent of shared decision making and take my time to explain medical issues in easy to understand language. I want my patient’s to leave their appointment feeling that there time was well spent, are active participants in their care, and understand our plan of care. I enjoy working closely with the Epilepsy team so that we can provide the best care to all of our patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two kids and participating in outdoor activites.
