Patients Seen: All Ages

I believe that every appoint­ment is form­ing or strength­en­ing a part­ner­ship. I val­ue com­mu­ni­ca­tion and shared deci­sion mak­ing between my patients and I. I want to ensure my patients are edu­cat­ed and under­stand all of their options; so that togeth­er we can for­mu­late a per­son­al­ized treat­ment plan which is right for them.

Personal Interests

I enjoy spend­ing time with my fam­i­ly and friends, espe­cial­ly when we gath­er around a good meal. I am always on the look­out for new and inter­est­ing recipes to try. After a hearty meal I love being out­doors, I seize every oppor­tu­ni­ty I get to hike or be on a lake. I am also book­worm; I enjoy fic­tion and non-fic­tion alike. I always try to stay up on the lat­est research to con­tin­ue to pro­vide the best pos­si­ble care for my patients.
