About

Bio

I'm a huge fan of HealthTap. I've been using it for a while now and I think it's a great way for people to get quality information. The internet can be full of information and misinformation. Luckily this site was formed where real doctors can help real patients.

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.
