Personal Statement

It is a pleasure and honor to work with other experts in geriatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine.  Geriatrics is a unique specialty within internal medicine that allows physicians to collaborate with an interprofessional team of experts to help the segment of the population who are often the most medically and psychosocially complex.   I love getting to know older adults and learning their life stories.  This helps me understand their values and what is most important to them now so we can figure out how to maximize their quality of life and function.
