My Passion for Healthcare

When I was a senior in high school, my father was diagnosed with colon cancer. Ever since then I aspired to become a physician. That experience with my father and our family made me even more certain that I was being called to serve others in medicine. During medical school, I found that I enjoyed all specialties, but I particularly found a passion in caring for young families as well as helping the very elderly and those facing end of life issues. I have found Family Medicine to be the perfect practice.

My Clinical Focus

While I don’t deliver babies anymore, I still enjoy caring for patients of all ages from newborns to the very elderly. I enjoy the complexities of chronic disease management as well as preventative medicine while continuing to provide up to date, evidence-based, medicine. I relish the freedom that family medicine allows. I provide services in sports medicine, skin cancer surgery, and osteopathic manipulative medicine to my patients. I have the expertise to teach workshops on advanced skin surgery to other physicians at medical conferences.
