“For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by science and medicine, and at the same time I’ve also considered myself to be a
“people person”. Medicine was the one area that allowed me to combine that desire to help others and make a direct, positive impact on their lives while immersed in the world of science and medicine that I find so interesting. The world of Neurology and Pain Management in particular was a very natural fit for me, taking on very difficult diagnostic and treatment challenges where I felt I could accomplish a lot for my patients even with the intense challenge of succeeding for my patients where others had failed.
“At the core I’m looking to make a real difference in my patients lives and offer them true help. I can provide hope and optimism where other practitioners have left patients lost, confused and scared. There is truly no greater pleasure than in working with tenacity on a most difficult case and either achieving the right diagnosis or finding the treatment that provides relief. I’ve been blessed to have trained with some of the finest physicians in the country in many different disciplines and I’ve adopted a multidisciplinary approach to all that I do, with an emphasis of cutting-edge care. When a patient walks through my door its no different than taking care of my own family member, we’re in this together and my job’s not done until I’ve made the right diagnosis and we’ve got the problem under control.”
