About

Bio

I was a Clinical Pharmacist, mostly in Infectious Diseases and Nutritional Support in Hospital ICUs for about 20 years prior to going to Medical School at Medical College of Wisconsin. I also completed my Internship and Residency at The Affiliated Hospitals of the Medical College of Wisconsin in Internal Medicine/Pediatrics, and served as Chief Resident during my final year. I am a Board Certified Fellow in Both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and love giving quality, compassionate care to my patients in both specialties. I am also close to Board Certification in Cosmetic Medicine. I enjoy going on Mission Trips to Central America and have learned Spanish doing so and serve the Spanish population in my area. Most all areas of medicine interest me. I have recently board certified in Addiction Medicine

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
