Accepting new patients
I have been married since 1991, raised 5 kids: a daughter and son naturally born in 1996 and 1998, and 3 internationally adopted kids, all born in 2002! Our family is a huge variety pack of humanity, which has helped me grow as a person and as a physician. I have run 6 marathons, the fastest being 3:05 when I was 43. I continue to run hard and lift weights, but I THINK I'm done with marathons! I am a Christian. I hope that I demonstrate the principle of caring for my patient as I would care for myself: with excellence, compassion, and perseverance. Finally, I am trying to write. (This is no simple undertaking.) I have a story to tell from my childhood and from my long battle with fibromyalgia. My hope is that my story will inspire many to overcome their suffering, and to find help sooner rather than later.
The patient's concerns are of first importance. A patient's experience--often a constellation of health problems or physical suffering--occurs in an emotional context. I try to look through the lenses my patient wears, so I can help put their trouble in perspective and then help them determine both the impact and the meaning of their situation.
Being a physician is surely one of the greatest professions in the world. In a patients' time of need, I am invited to join in their story and try to help. It is meaningful work, worthy of hard study and my best continuing effort.
