Philosophy of Care 

Medicine first peaked my interest in junior high biology. As I continued my education, I became increasingly intrigued by science and more aware of the artful way my own pediatrician combined empathy and humor into taking care of patients. Throughout my medical training, I have been most influenced by physicians who are able to listen well and communicate effectively with their patients. I was drawn to becoming a family physician because of the opportunity to develop excellent working relationships with patients.


I was introduced to sports medicine during my residency which provided a new opportunity for me to include my passion for dance and figure skating into my practice. As a dancer in childhood and a figure skater as a teen, it has been a real joy to work with these and other athletes as a physician.
