Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine: I became a nurse practitioner to help people achieve a healthy life. It can be really challenging dealing with lung or sleep problems, so impacting a patient in this area is of absolute importance.
What patients should expect when they come to an appointment with me: I am patient centered. I spend time with my patients answering their questions, and help provide clarity from the medical side of the equation to the best of my abilities. I do my best trying to understand things from the patient's point of view.
What I do when I’m not seeing patients: I enjoy spending time with my wife. I like sports, reading, exercise, and walking my dog.
