About

Bio

Board Certified in Internal Medicine, working as a Hospitalist. I have a broad range of experience having worked in 4 different states across the country in over 10 different hospitals and medical settings.

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.
