My Areas of Practice

I believe in providing personalized, compassionate and evidence based medical care to my patients of all ages. My objective is to develop a strong relationship with patients and their families in our journey together for improving their physical and emotional health and overall quality of life.

I am interested in providing comprehensive primary and preventive care to my patients. My special interest is "Metabolic Syndrome" and its associated diseases such as Diabetes Mellitus, Obesity, high blood pressure and cholesterol.

I enjoy teaching medical students and residents. Before joining Park Nicollet, I was Assistant Professor of Family Medicine at Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester, MN where I also served as chair of a committee on Preventive Health.

I currently serve as President & Chair Executive Committee of Minnesota Academy of Family Physicians.
