Approach to Patient Care
I find the continuity of the provider-patient relationship in primary care to be special within the medical world. The opportunity to build an ongoing connection and truly get to know your patients is unique and yet so important to comprehensive care. Empowering patients to make positive lifestyle choices and providing education to make informed medical decisions is an important part of my practice.
Growing up in the hustle and bustle of the east coast (Philadelphia), I was drawn to the pace of life and the access to nature of the Pacific Northwest. Staying active is important for me to maintain balance; running, cycling, hiking and soaking up the Oregonian sunshine. I also enjoy reading a good book, trying out a new recipe, or catching some live music.
