I start by trying to understand what the patient or parent feels is happening. I want to understand what their concerns are. Once that is established, I try to fill in the gaps with lots and lots of questions, along with a thorough exam. Having the whole story is key to understanding the illness.
I chose to practice medicine because I enjoy the challenges of solving puzzles. Illnesses are puzzles that patients would like to be solved.
I am married wtih 2 boys. I enjoy movies, books, and games with my family.
