Personal

I chose internal medicine because I am interested in getting to personally know a diverse group of patients over time. As an internist, I want to educate patients about their health so that they can play an active role in their own care. My hope is that I will work in partnership with my patients in choosing treatments that are sensitive to their own cultural beliefs and wants. When not practicing medicine, I love to travel the world with my husband. When home, I enjoy cooking, reading, seeing movies and spending time with friends and our two cats.
