What is a hospitalist? Hospitalist are doctors who are solely devoted to treating patients in the hospital. We usually serve as the main coordinator of your care team, although we sometimes act as a secondary physician to assist you with other medical needs. In addition to seeing you daily during your stay, we also communicate with you primary doctor when you go home.
Besides hospital medicine, I have a passion for Advance Care Planning and work with Park Nicollet to promote this important aspect of care. I really enjoy assisting patients and families determine their goals of care, which can be the most rewarding part of my job.
I also have an interest in quality improvement work, particularly hospital management of diabetes.
