"I first went to college with the idea of being a musician, but I didn't have any talent so that didn't work out. Once in college I started taking science courses which I truly enjoyed. After meeting some people who were pre-med it occurred to me that practicing medicine would be a great way for me to do good in my life.

Pain doesn't live in a vacuum; it lives within the whole person. Even though I'm not practicing holistic medicine, I do try to treat the whole person. I want to work with the patient and assist them in identifying things they can modify.  We will work together to find things I can do to help and support them in ownership of their recovery. The patient and I are going to work together to find ways to make their life better."
