Patients Seen: Adults

I find it very impor­tant to treat patients as peo­ple first by wel­com­ing them to my prac­tice and try­ing to help them remem­ber that they are an indi­vid­ual who hap­pens to have a neu­ro­log­ic prob­lem — not just a patient with a dis­ease. It is very impor­tant to address each patien­t’s med­ical con­cerns, but I want to make sure that I under­stand how these con­cerns affect their lives so we can work togeth­er to man­age each prob­lem holistically.

Personal Interests

I love to go on long walks and admire urban archi­tec­ture. I enjoy cook­ing and shar­ing meals with friends. I dab­ble in pho­tog­ra­phy, which helps make my urban wan­der­ings more inten­tion­al. And I have been enjoy­ing read­ing in my spare time.
