Personal

In my time away from work I enjoy travel, cooking and movies.  One of my favorite parts of being a doctor is the long-term relationships I form with patients.  I understand that going to the doctor can be a stressful, vulnerable time.  Our team is very aware of this, and strives to make your patient experience the best that it can be.
