About

Bio

Graduate of the University of Missouri, Kansas City School of Medicine and Indiana University Internal Medicine Residency. My main area of focus has been in hospital based medicine and in education of medical students and residents. My favorite thing in medicine is to help patients get good information so they can learn how they can take care of themselves better.

Specialties
