“My training taught me the medical side of asthma and allergy care, as well as how to help people feel better and live healthier. But, there is another side to healthcare that can’t be taught – empathizing with patients. In the years that I’ve been in practice, I like to think that listening to my patients (you), explaining all your options and understanding your concerns is my real specialty.”

A Strong Educational Foundation

“My feeling is that a solid academic background is critical to giving patients medical care they can count on. To achieve this, I attended respected schools and continue to work hard to attain the very best education possible. I’m grateful for the knowledge I’ve received and the skills I’ve developed. These skills will be the foundation for my personalized and effective care for years to come.”
