My patient care philosophy is to make sure patients feel valued and well-cared for. The primary way I do this is by carefully listening to patients to understand their needs and concerns and by carefully communicating what our plan is for meeting these needs and concerns.
Gastroenterology is important because our field has significantly decreased the incidence of colon cancer and because we can help improve the quality of life of patients with gastrointestinal issues.
I saw that there was a great shortage of healthcare providers and that my strengths would be well utilized in this profession.
I enjoy spending time with family, backpacking, hiking, fishing, crabbing, clamming and exploring new places.
