Philosophy of Care

In order to provide my patients with the best care possible, I strive to create an atmosphere of open communication and trust. I want my patients to feel comfortable asking me questions and expressing any concerns. I believe in shared decision making and spend time educating my patients about their health and treatment plan and developing healthy goals together. I think of us as a team and feel honored they have chosen me to facilitate their care.

    Practicing medicine for over 18 years, the majority of my experience has been in hematology and oncology. I also have a strong interest in women's health.

    I love spending time outdoors with my family – bike riding and hiking, skiing, sledding, playing tennis and roasting marshmallows.
