Practices In: Glen Ellyn, Naperville
Patients Seen: All Ages

I believe in build­ing strong con­nec­tions and rela­tion­ships with my patients. By tak­ing time to lis­ten, I am bet­ter able to under­stand their con­cerns, and approach the treat­ment plan with their out­come goals in mind. I am a firm believ­er in empow­er­ing patients through shared deci­sion mak­ing and infor­ma­tive dia­logue. Encour­ag­ing their proac­tive atti­tudes and actions allows me to treat my patients to the best of my abilities.
