About

Bio

After medical school and residency training, I completed fellowships in medical editing and clinical research. Since 2004, I have been a faculty member in the University of North Carolina Department of Family Medicine. I have seen patients of all ages, but especially adults and elderly patients. I have extra knowledge in bone health because of my research on osteoporosis and bone density screening.

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.

It's not very deep and this happened 2 days ago. It looks much better today. I have a beach trip in 5 days & I kind of need it to be better. Thank you
