Patient Care Settings

Hospital Medicine, Primary Care


I enjoy the opportunity to create close, longitudinal relationships with my patients. I believe it is necessary to treat the whole patient, including psychosocial aspects as well as medical aspects. The relationships with my patients are partnerships and I feel the secret to a physician/patient relationship is honest teamwork.
