Credentials
Board Certified in Vascular Surgery
Experience
I previously worked in an academic hospital and was heavily involved in the education of students and young surgeons. I have also worked to expand vascular services to patients to provide comprehensive care for complex vascular disease. I continue to be involved in surgical education through the teaching of review courses to surgeons who are attempting to become board certified.
Philosophy
I treat patients like people, not a collection of test results and procedures. I believe that modern technology should be utilized to give patients as many options for treatment as possible, and I advocate for minimally invasive therapies when appropriate. I encourage patients to participate and be active in their own care.
Personal Information
Outside of work, I enjoy traveling and exploring new places. I enjoy cooking and trying new cuisines. I also like learning new skills and activities. In recent years, I have learned to do pottery on a wheel, taken up horseback riding, paddleboarding and boxing.

I felt strongly that these three doctors would rather not see me for whatever reason. Very strange!

The doctor scheduled an ultrasound, yet did not give me the results until my next visit - 3 mos. later. Her only suggestion for my venous insufficiency is to buy compression socks that must be purchased from her. She was upset to hear I also purchased some elsewhere. There was no information provided suggesting my legs would improve. Since then I've started using some naturopathic tools (essential oils & taking a bilberry supplement) and I have already improved.

in a hurry. acted "put out" that she had to speak with me. she explains things very hastily and in a non-caring manner.

This doctor was extremely arrogant towards me. Never listened to me about my questions, talked over me. She sat there for 20 minutes, degrading me about anything & everything. I was VERY displeased with her overall professional care. Would never recommend her.
