Biography

Biography

I was inspired to become a doctor by my mom, who is a nurse, and the physicians who cared for me when I was a teenager. I was always good at and interested in science, math and the humanities. Becoming a physician was a logical way to combine these. When approaching patients, I try to ask myself how I would approach them if they were a family member, spouse or best friend and then act accordingly. I believe the competencies embraced by the American Committee on Graduate Medical Education — which include medical knowledge, professionalism, proper communication, practice-based learning/improvement and patient care — are an excellent framework for all physicians. I place a lot of value on quality-of-life issues.

My family is the most important thing in my life. Outside of work, I love to spend time outdoors with my wife and children. I also run, cycle and surf whenever I can.
