“My vision has always been to build a practice that provides the most comprehensive, dynamic, “state of the art” care to our patients with arthritis and rheumatic diseases. I am beyond proud of the amazing team of physicians, physician assistants, nurses and support staff we have assembled, who all provide that exact quality of care in the most caring and compassionate of environments.
Our patients often have very complex problems. I have diverse training in internal medicine, sports medicine, and rheumatology and believe this comprehensive background allows me to get to the bottom of the most complex patient cases and find ways, ultimately, to help my patients heal.
I am fascinated by and have great passion for the field of Rheumatology. This drive has me constantly pursuing the integration of the most cutting edge diagnostic and treatment strategies into our practice. In the last decade there have been incredible advances in the field of Rheumatology that have provided the opportunity to greatly improve the quality of life of our patients. It gives me great satisfaction to be able to harness this knowledge to help our patient’s physical, mental and emotional state improve.”
