Patients should know…

I try to foster open and honest communications, shared decision making and medical care guided by the best available evidence.

I enjoy providing care to those who often need it the most, who have been disadvantaged for a variety of reasons and thus have not been able to get high quality care, often relying on ERs or inconsistent primary care follow-up.

I also hope to make an impact on the community by helping to address the healthcare disparities that can have a negative effect on the social and economic disparity already present in low-income areas.
