Patient Care Philosophy

I support the team of providers by assessing, diagnosing, and monitoring disease progression and medication tolerability of patients with rheumatologic conditions. I provide educational visits for many patients who are starting medications and also serve as the practitioner for those needing urgent care for same-day appointments. The collaborative effort in this team provides our patients with comprehensive management. What I enjoy seeing are patients who are actively engaged in their rheumatologic care.
