Background

I believe an important part of an emergency room visit is education. As much as possible, I try to explain what tests we are doing and why and what can be done after going home. Please feel free to ask me questions.

I attended Hanover College for my BA in Biology. I graduated from Indiana University School of Medicine in 1997. My residency was done at Wayne State/Detroit Receiving Hospital. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2000. My interests include quality assurance, stroke and procedural sedation.
