I was drawn to Internal Medicine while in medical school, as it appealed to my broad interests with its vast subject matter and wide scope of practice. I enjoy providing comprehensive medical care and treating the entire patient as a whole. I believe in practicing compassion, empathy and open-mindedness with my patients, and always put my patient first and make decisions that are in their best interest. I believe open communication, tolerance and trust are essential to the doctor-patient relationship. I want my patients to be actively involved in their medical care so they feel empowered to continue making healthy life choices when they leave my clinic.
