Philosophy of Care: Provision of complete care addressing mind, body, and spirit. Each patient exists within a complex context and presents with a unique story that humanizes text book medicine. My goal is to match the patient’s story and experiences with the appropriate medical diagnosis and to collaborate on a plan of care that is maximally effective and an efficient fit for the patient that is also sensitive and respectful to their health values and beliefs.
Why did you choose EPFM Residency? EPFM felt like a good fit for me and better yet, it is close to my family. I had the opportunity to complete my third and fourth year medical student clinical rotations at Good Samaritan Hospital and have seen a tremendous amount of growth and potential in a gorgeous small town community hospital. We serve a diverse cultural population with diverse pathology. There are plenty of learning opportunities and experienced clinicians with loads of knowledge waiting to be tapped by hungry minds in a supportive learning environment. The community physicians are amazing!
