What is your main goal or mission in working with patients?
My main goal in working with my patients is to help them reach their optimal level of health by creating a healthy balance between medication therapies and lifestyle modifications. I want patients to feel heard and understood and like they are involved in reaching their own health goals.
What do you think makes you unique or different than others in a similar field?
My desire is to meet patients “where they are” to formulate a treatment plan that will work for their individual lifestyle. I take the time to listen to their concerns and their beliefs in their own capabilities to determine the best course of action. Every patient will be cared for as if they are in my own family because every patient IS someone’s family member.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Spend time with my husband and new 2-month-old son (and catching the ever so needed nap).
