I am a board certified emergency physician who specializes in point-of-care ultrasound and healthcare quality. I am an advocate for patient safety, bridging healthcare disparities, and eliminating waste (time, cost, overuse, misuse, underuse) in the healthcare system. The needs of the people who come to me for care come first. I have been an educator for over a decade and taught physicians and patients internationally, nationally, and within my institution. I have been the recipient of numerous teaching awards. I do not know everything and will tell you when we reach the borders of my knowledge. I am grateful to work with a team who can pick up where my knowledge ends to help you and others.
