About

Bio

I am a board-certified Emergency Medicine Physician, with over 7 years of clinical practice, more than 3 of which have been post-residency. I attended medical school at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine in Virginia, and went on to complete a four year residency at UPMC Hamot in Pennsylvania. My last year of residency I served as Chief Resident. I now work clinically in three Emergency Departments in central Virginia, taking care of both pediatric and adult patients. I am passionate about patient education, helping patients to navigate some of the barriers to accessing appropriate healthcare, and empowering patients to take ownership of their own health.

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.
