Hospitalists are board certified internal medicine doctors who specialize in caring for hospitalized patients. Having a hospitalist is similar to have a primary care doctor with you in the hospital throughout your stay. Hospitalists work with your primary care doctor and specialists to ensure that you receive high-quality health care, but do not see patients in the clinic setting.
My philosophy of medicine is patient-centered. I strive to listen, be compassionate and keep the lines of communication open with my patients. I aim to provide the level of care to my patients that I would want a member of my family to receive.
My family influenced me the most to choose a career in medicine . My grandfather was a family physician, my father is a veterinarian. Growing up, I witnessed the lives they touched and helped, I hope to do the same. I am married. I have two boys, ages 5 & 7.
