What are some of the specific conditions you treat?

As a general internist, I treat anything from the common cold to overseeing some complex medical care. Some of my time is spent with routine well health visits, some is for followup of chronic health issues, and some is for acute illnesses. These cover all areas of medicine, from cardiology to gastroenterology, endocrinology, orthopedics, psychiatry, etc.

Describe some of your professional highlights.

As a physician here for over 20 years, some of my highlights are seeing the children of my patients (who are now adults) when I saw their parents as young adults BEFORE having children. It is always gratifying to make specific diagnoses that make people feel better when they are not feeling well. I enjoy spending time with the patients, and learning about their lives, as well as discussing their health issues.

I find the area of medicine fascinating. I feel fortunate that I was raised in a family that encouraged me and inspired me to work hard to do something that I enjoy.

What would you like patients to know about your approach to care?

I feel honored to be able to serve the community as a physician. I still find this type of work as interesting as I did before I even entered medical school. I like to think about the patient as a whole, not just as a particular "problem" or "disease."
