My Areas of Practice

The Head + Heart, Together focus of Park Nicollet aligns well with my practice philosophy. Part of this focus includes working closely with my patient, the patient's family and loved ones, as well as my colleagues at Park Nicollet. It is important to me to establish a strong working relationship with my patients, founded in mutual respect. The care I provide is based upon evidence-based medicine, with an emphasis on patient-centered, individualized treatment strategies, enabling me to provide the highest quality healthcare.

As a rheumatologist, my expertise lies in diagnosing and managing autoimmune or rheumatic conditions, including (but not limited to): Rheumatoid arthritis, Ankylosing spondylitis, Psoriatic arthritis, other inflammatory arthritis, Gout, Pseudogout, Systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren's syndrome, Scleroderma, Vasculitis, Inflammatory muscle disease, Osteoarthritis and local soft tissue conditions (tendinitis, bursitis, etc.), and other connective tissue diseases. I also provide various injection therapies for treatment of arthritis, tendinitis and bursitis. I typically do not provide long-term management of chronic pain conditions, including Fibromyalgia as well as persistent, non-inflammatory low back or neck pain. These conditions are often best managed using an interdisciplinary approach, including rehabilitation and pain management services. Overall, it is my goal to provide high quality, compassionate care to all my patients.

Personal

I recently moved to Minneapolis, after completing my medical training at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics in Iowa City, Iowa. I grew up in Indiana and have moved throughout the Midwest as I completed medical school, residency and fellowship. I am excited to join Park Nicollet and begin serving the Twin Cities area. I am passionate about providing holisitic, empathic care to all my patients. Outside of rheumatology, I enjoy watching movies, gardening, cooking, reading, exploring Minnesota and spending time with my family and friends.
