Family Medicine Profile

The first thing I want to do when I meet a new patient is try to get to know them a bit and make sure they are comfortable with me. I talk with my patients so that I can get a sense of who they are and, of course, what their medical issue is. My goal is always to make sure we address their issue but also I spend time educating them along with treatment. I want them to know what I am doing and why. I provide compassionate care and I want my patients to feel they can come to me for anything. We are partners in their care.

In family practice, I see patients of all ages - from babies to seniors and everything in between. As a primary care physician, I am the person my patients go to when they are not well. I'm the first line of defense against disease and illness. I like that. It means that I do not have to limit myself to just one medical specialty. Still, I know my limitations. So if there is something that requires more specialized expertise, being at NorthBay means we have specialists to turn to for those unique situations.

In primary care, I treat a variety of health issues and have a particular interest in women's health. So in my practice I make it a priority to see that my patients are getting their annual exams. This is important in order to keep diseases from occurring in the first place. As a child, I had a pediatrician who really inspired me to go into medicine. It was just clear that he cared so much for his patients. That is the type of doctor-patient relationship I strive to achieve. For me, back then, medicine was magical. You would see the doctor and he would help you feel better. That's what attracted me to this field.

I got into medicine because I wanted to help people and it's why I like doing what I'm doing. I have something positive to provide for my patients and the community.

When I am not at work, I enjoy reading. Even though my schooling is done, I still read those medical journals! When I am not reading that sort of thing, I enjoy a good novel and spending time with my family.
