Practice Philosophy

“I was drawn to rheumatology because I believe it emphasizes keen observation of all aspects of a patient’s health, and a strong medical knowledge base that truly takes each patient’s unique story into account. I strongly believe medicine is about raising the patient’s awareness and understanding of treatment options and possible outcomes. Empowering my patients to be as informed as possible about their diagnosis and treatments and allowing them to live with best quality of life is what drives me to come to work each day.”
