Support Services, Hospitalists
Why did you choose your specialty area?
I enjoy meeting patients from a variety of backgrounds and hearing about their lives. I also enjoy the detective work that internists often employ to get to the bottom of medically complex cases. A career in internal medicine allows me to do both.
How do you spend your spare time?
I spend my spare time hiking, watching classic movies, learning to cook
#1 Health tip that you can offer:
Cigarette smoking is the leading preventable cause of mortality. There are many different resources available now to assist in tobacco cessation. I encourage all smokers to talk with their physician about steps they can take to stop smoking.
