  • About Me:

    I’m a pretty adventurous eater, especially when it comes to sampling ethnic cuisine (but not as much when it comes to exotic delicacies!). This open-minded approach carries over to my work as a family physician. I’m always listening and feel strongly about involving my patients in the decision-making process.

    You put a lot of trust in me as an advocate for your health and I respect that. To me, patient relationships are a partnership. I will do my part in helping you make the changes – and adopt the behaviors – to feel your best.
