From the Doctor:
I want my patients and their families to see me as a friend, not just a doctor. I enjoy establishing close connections with them, and I pride myself on being a good listener. By encouraging preventive care measures such as immunizations, I hope to help my patients avoid illness and lead healthy, active lives.
When I'm not helping to care for my patients, I'm caring for my three children. I love spending time with my husband and my kids, and I stay busy by serving as a PTA volunteer.
I also enjoy playing soccer, running and hiking.
