About

Bio

I am an Emergency Medicine physician who can help with a variety of medical complaints. My area of expertise is very broad considering the variety of disease processes I must be adept with treating in an ER. My job is truly being able to decipher a true emergency which is typically most patients' greatest fear: that they are acutely very ill. I am patient and try to explain things to my patients so they not only understand their illnesses, but are then proactive in their recovery because they were instructed why things happen, and not just given prescriptions without explanations.

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.
