"With my background in medical education, I focus on educating my patients about their health problems and options that are available for them. I empower my patients and educate them to be able to advocate for themselves and make true informed choices about their health. I am a strong believer of inquiry-based learning, therefore I try to create an environment for inquiry for my patients. Practicing medicine offers me a very unique opportunity to get to build deep relationships every day. It is a relationship that serves both physician and the patient. I enjoy drawing pictures or showing their imaging studies and helping them understand and see their health because I believe being able to see or feel the condition creates the motivation to take care of themselves."
