Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine: Working in medicine is a dynamic job and I think that is what drew me to it. Technology is continuously advancing with new information available that leads to evolving treatment plans. This pushes you to become a continuous learner and to keep your mind sharp. In addition to that, it is a rewarding career. Watching a patient get healthy and improve their clinical status is what makes the job fulfilling.
What patients should expect when they come to an appointment with me: Patients should expect to come and feel that all of their concerns are heard and all questions are answered to their satisfaction. They can expect a plan of care individualized to their personal needs and clinical scenario.
What I do when I'm not seeing patients: My husband and I enjoy several outdoor activities. We enjoy hiking, biking, playing with our dog, traveling and attending sporting events like baseball and football games.
