Diplomate, American Board of Infectious Diseases and Internal Medicine

“Every day, I strive to give my patients as much time as possible. I feel that I can make a difference in a patient’s life by paying attention to the details. Often the best physicians are those in whom the patient has the greatest confidence. Having a patient be a partner in their care is the best outlook for recovery”.
