Section Head, General Internal Medicine
My outlook towards patient care is one of optimism. I fundamentally believe that no matter where one is in the spectrum of wellness, there are ways to feel better. Working together with patients and their families, I allow their active participation in determining what the best next move is. Whether it be by small changes in diet or adjusting certain behaviors, to trying new medication or referring for specialty consultation, the goal is always the same – to move an individual towards better health so they be more satisfied with their day-to-day experience.
