Philosophy of Medicine

"I consider the opportunity to take care of a fellow human being is an unparalleled honor and privilege. Often, I discuss my assessments on patients based upon what I would do if my family member would face a similar situation. Every day provides an opportunity to help and make a difference in the life of someone with what I love doing."
