Personal Statement

My main goal in practice is to provide superb patient care, with emphasis on comfort, access, and education. It is critically important for patients to understand their risks and diseases, so that they may take control of their own health. As a primary care practitioner, my role is to diagnose the problem when it exists, to teach patients about prevention of disease, and to open the door to exceptional specialists at one of the finest academic medical centers in the country, where I have been privileged to train, teach, and practice.
