Philosophy of Care
There are many important factors that contribute to a person’s overall health,
including individual life circumstances, prevention, and available evidence-based treatments. I believe in working
together with patients to examine these factors and determine a path to better health. The establishment of a
physician-patient relationship built on a foundation of trust, understanding, and continuity makes this possible.

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, going for day hikes, and reading.
Health care policy and reform are of particular interest to me.
Patient Ratings and Comments
The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments. These comments are the views and opinions of patients and are not endorsed by or necessarily reflect the views of Providence.
