My philosophy is that in order to be able to deliver the best possible care I need to be patient, empathetic, humble, and have an ever expanding fund of knowledge.  Having been a patient myself, I know that it is vital to treat people fairly, try to address all of their concerns, and be open and honest.  I am committed to my patients as if they were my family.  I know each patient is unique and the treatment of their disease should fit their needs and situation as best as possible.

Why I Chose Medicine

My interest in medicine started very early in my life.  I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 18 months old and as much of a pain as it has been, it has led me to where I am today.  I was fortunate to have a great support system in my parents, my brother and my endocrinologist. They not only made me feel more comfortable  living with diabetes, but made me want to learn as much as possible and pass that knowledge on to others.  After completing my Internal Medicine residency, endocrinology seemed like a perfect fit with my experience in diabetes and love of treating complex problems. The specialty also affords me the time I want to spend with patients to build trust and get to the root of a medical problem.
