About Me

I am an endocrinologist at Memorial Healthcare System. I care for patients with a wide variety of conditions including thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary and adrenal disorders as well as diabetes, high cholesterol, osteoporosis and gender dysphoria.

I developed a special interest in endocrinology during my second year of medical school. I was fascinated with biochemistry and the intricate hormonal pathways that regulate our body.

I enjoy creating and maintaining relationships with my patients and their caregivers. The most rewarding aspect of my job is helping patients feel better and preventing complications.

My approach to patient care is based on providing the tools and knowledge necessary for patients to understand their specific condition, formulating an individualized plan and, most importantly, empowering patients to take control of their disease and/or health.
