About

Bio

Being available, affable and able are the rules to to which I personally ascribe. I have found these principles to be the foundation for a very successful practice. Additionally, with the rapidly changing healthcare environment and in order to maintain our practice's success, I am trailblazing with my physician partners of Synergy Specialists Medical Group. We realize that we all must evolve by being adaptable and flexible and therefore willing to learn new clinical and administrative skills and duties; we also are continually willing to engage and take on salient issues and not ignore reality; we also realize that these tasks will not be easy and will require a concerted effort on all of our parts.
