About

Bio

I am 32 years old, recently graduated from residency, and trained in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania at Allegheny General Hospital. I am eager to explore tele-medicine so I can reach people in a NEW way. I realize there are many problems with health care, and just getting an appointment into a doctors office can take months. But what if there is an urgent issue? With this electronic approach I am able to offer my services/knowledge to a patient who has not seen a doctor for years, has been turned down, forced to see a provider in 3 months, etc. I am here to help you, and I have your back! Welcome to the practice and enjoy.
