I am independent and entrepreneurial, but I also function well as a team player. As a physician I am compassionate and thorough, with the drive and determination to solve all medical puzzles within the confines of patient wishes. I love to teach, and would welcome opportunities to do this in all future endeavors. I am also not opposed to serving in an administrative or leadership role, and have done so during my student years -- with characteristic aplomb. I am not, however, interested in research: I am a clinician and teacher at heart, and have never formally trained as an experimental medical scientist. Summary: entrepreneur, compassionate clinician, passionate teacher, decisive and effective administrator and leader. Eager and willing to fulfill all roles.The above referenced Practice is my current position, and has been so for nearly thirteen years. I am an Associate at Maryland Primary Care Physicians, LLC. I practice clinical general internal medicine, with emphases in preventative medicine, diabetology, dermatology, and infectious disease. I have extensive experience in neurology, cardiology, pulmonary medicine, gastroenterology, hepatology, nephrology, and psychiatry/psychology.
