I am originally from New York state, but my medical education has taken me to several parts of the country. I am pleased to have practiced with Northwest Permanente in Portland since 2012.
About my practice
I gain satisfaction in getting to know our members over the long run and partnering with them to improve their health. Many medical problems have a significant behavioral component and can be prevented or alleviated by changing lifestyle habits. I believe that prevention is preferable to cure because cures are rare. In fact, I consider managing chronic conditions to be the mainstay of my practice.
How I thrive
In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities, travel, and writing. I have published an article on the ethics of cosmetic enhancement. If you're looking for book recommendations, I can probably help with that, too!
