Profile

I chose to specialize in emergency medicine at a time when few knew what the specialty was. It is the only specialty created because of public demand for better care of acute conditions, such as stroke, heart attack, and trauma. It requires quick thinking, round-the-clock work, and the training and experience to diagnose quickly and to treat anything that might come in. For me, it is a place to make a difference in the lives of others.

To complement my medical training, I earned a masters from the Bloomberg School of Public Health.

I joined Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group in 2012 after working for several years at the Social Security Administration in occupations medicine/disaster planning. From the beginning, the medical group has committed to bringing board-certified emergency physicians 24/7 in all of our clinical decision units.

My focus at the medical group has been on transitions of acute care in an environment that minimizes hassle for the patient, provides good care, and reduces unnecessary costs.  We seek to improve outcomes by breaking down the traditional silos of health care and by working together collaboratively, irrespective of specialty, to provide the best care in a single location.
