UBMD Family Medicine


Family Medicine



Professional Summary:

I provide outpatient primary care service at Jefferson Family Medicine . I treat patients with multiple chronic medical problems such as diabetes, hypertension, obesity and high cholesterol, providing proactive, preventative and compassionate care for these complex cases. My practice emphasizes coordinating care across interdisciplinary teams and helping patients make therapeutic lifestyle changes through diet, exercise and weight loss. I take great pleasure in working with diverse, under served patients, including patients with mental illnesses, helping them understand their disease, overcome barriers to treatment and address the causes of noncompliance.

I am passionate about teaching and education. I provide mentoring, teaching and supervision for medical students and the residents at our clinic. My goal is to create great leaders and excellent physicians for the future.
