About Me

As a Nurse Practitioner I strive to provide a comfortable environment for my patients by listening and building a strong provider-patient relationship. I am passionate about patient education and empowering them to take an active role in their overall health. As part of a team, I am committed to provide the highest quality medical care to treat and prevent digestive diseases. I view the provider-patient relationship as a partnership, and believe that each encounter with a patient is an opportunity to provide knowledge that will assist them in the medical decision making process.
