From the Doctor

My family enjoys traveling and eating good food from different ethnicities. I have two daughters who like to be on the beach out in the sun. I feel privileged to have worked with world-renowned physicians in scleroderma, blood vessel disorders, and inflammation of the muscles during my fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh.

My philosophy of care is centered on patient education. I believe that if I can teach patients about the disease process and give good information about treatment options that that they will be able to make the best-informed decision. As not all people are the same, I strongly believe in personalized treatment plans, one size does not fit all. By spending time and listening to my patients, I am able to develop a relationship and they are able to trust me, and trust that we are making the right choices together.
