I joined the Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group because I believe in the integrated aspect of taking care of patients.

My interest in medicine began when I was a child; I was inspired to care for people and patients watching my parents, both in the medical field, as I was growing up.

I like being a physician because I have the opportunity to positively affect one life at a time.

It is important that my patients know that I value their opinion in making decisions in their health care.

I have a special clinical interest in HIV and STD prevention and treatment.
