From the Doctor

I am a Florida native who practiced as a hospitalist in Tampa and Chicago before completing a two-year fellowship in rheumatology. As a board-certified internist, I spend time reviewing my patient’s medical records prior to each office visit so that I have a good understanding of their entire health history.

Safety is a top priority for me and attention to detail is important given the complexities of medications. While I am excited to offer the most advanced and comprehensive treatments available, I also understand that in some cases close monitoring is all that is needed and a less aggressive approach is sometimes best.
