Stemming from my time as a clinical professor with the University of Louisville, I consider myself frst and foremost an educator. When seeing patients, I want them to have as much information as they can before making decisions about their body. HoW Do YoU APProACH PATIENT CArE?

My parents raised me with compassion and understanding, and I bring that forward when practicing medicine.
