Clinical Expertise

Internal Medicine

Philosophy of Care

I work with individual patients within the hospital to help them to overcome and address the illness that brought them to the hospital. My role addresses an individual patient's goals within the context of their illness and establishes a pathway that leads to those individual goals.
Most commonly the goal is to get better and go home. One occasion the goal is more specific, such as breathe easier so that I can do what brings me happiness, or attend my daughter's wedding. I understand that being in the hospital is very stressful; I hope I can alleviate some of the stress by clear communications with the patient and their family.

Experience

Year began practicing: 1997

Medical School

Cornell University-Medical College | New York, NY

Residency

University of Washington (internal medicine) | Seattle, WA

Personal Information

I started practicing hospital medicine exclusively in 1999 because the medical practice within the hospital and clinic had begun to diverge. Patients who found their way into the hospital had become increasing ill and required a different set of skills and an accelerated pace of care. I felt that my clinical focus and skills were best suited to hospital medicine. I continue to enjoy and find meaning while working with hospitalized patients.

Community Involvement

I teach clinical medicine to medical students at the University of Washington School of Medicine.
I am actively involved in the local public school district where my two sons attend.
