About Me

I think of diseases as the shroud of darkness and uncertainty that veils the future. Although the path ahead is riddled with unknowns, as a physician I am humbled the opportunity of being a partner in each patient and family member's journey, providing comfort, hope and support with the life transitions ahead.
