What makes you passionate about being a healthcare provider?
Being a healthcare provider gives me the unique opportunity to help patients achieve health by educating my patients and encouraging health habits. This is a very rewarding experience and I love being a knowledgeable resource for my patients!
In your opinion, what should be the role of a primary care provider for a patient, taking into account both physical health and behavioral health needs?
The primary care provider should be an approachable and inclusive healthcare provider, willing to take care of both the physical health needs, as well as the behavioral health needs. Behavioral health is so prevalent, and de-stigmatizing behavioral and mental health is now more important than ever. Being a PCP and being able to care for all aspects of your patients health is rewarding.
Tell us a little bit about yourself. What do you like to do in your spare time?
In my free time, I like to go for walks with my spouse and golden retriever, read a book, watch tv, as well as go to amusement parks like Disney! I enjoy being active and in warm weather, and I love traveling as well.
