From the Doctor:
I have loved living in Florida since I moved here in 2009. I feel most at peace when I am by the ocean. My husband and I enjoy boating, books and bicycling. I also do a bit of gardening and particularly enjoy growing orchids.
My philosophy of care is always patient centered. I believe a well-educated patient can make the best informed choices about their health care, so my staff and I spend lots of time educating patients during their visits. I am dedicated to providing the same level of excellent care to patients from all walks of life. I believe we caregivers are privileged to accompany and support patients on their health care journeys.
I also believe in the power of charity. I have been an active volunteer with the American Cancer Society for nearly two decades, and served as Chair of the Florida Division in 2016.
