About Me

I chose rheumatology as a specialty because I find inflammatory and autoimmune conditions interesting. Some of the conditions are treated readily but many rheumatologic conditions are chronic diseases requiring long term management with systemic immunotherapy. I enjoy getting to know my patients and offering available treatments to improve their symptoms and quality of life.
