From the doctor
I relocated to Jacksonville in 2019 after I completed my training. I enjoy spending time on the river and beach, enjoying the Florida weather.
My philosophy of care is to provide a compassionate, non-judgmental space to understand patients’ experiences as they are dealing with medical challenges. I work to empower patients to be key members of their healthcare team by maximizing their strengths and adding tools to their toolkit. I believe that patient-centered care positively impacts patients’ experiences in the hospital and promotes well-being.
