I thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to interact with my patients and get to know them. I believe in evidence based medicine and prevention as the cornerstone for success in treatment.

I expect my patients to participate in their own care and enjoy teaching them to understand their conditions. I like to keep an open line of communication and welcome any follow up calls or emails; working as a team can ensure the best quality of care and ultimately the best results.

As a podiatrist, I can treat any problems related to the foot/ankle and help patients improve their function and walk without pain; it's very rewarding.

I try to maintain a healthy well-balanced lifestyle. I enjoy yoga, hiking, spinning, dancing, cooking and spending time with my family.
