About Me

Care Philosophy

As a hospitalist, I diagnose, treat and coordinate the medical care of hositalized adults. I understand that each person cared for is a unique individual with his or her own concerns, social conditions, and other factors that impact how they deal with and respond to illness. It is my goal to provide excellent care, every time and strive to be responsive to individual needs.
