Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine: I chose a career in medicine primarily to provide care to members of my community. I began my career in medicine out of both a feeling of curiosity and compassion. Being a physician has allowed me to impact human life in a most unique way - allowing to care for individuals in their most vulnerable times. Medicine has been both a calling and a privilege - allowing me to care for patients in all extremes of the human condition - from simple problems to life threatening conditions.
What I want my patients to know about me: My patients should expect a comprehensive, compassionate and informative patient visit. I believe in a patient-centric approach to care involving patients in the care process and care decisions.
What I do when I am not seeing patients: When I am not seeing patients, I can be found traveling with my family, coaching baseball and soccer and enjoying life in Central Pennsylvania.
