Narrative

Through my experiences with medicine in the United States and abroad, it has become clearly evident that the human body is not only complex but incredibly resilient. This foundational understanding is what drove me to pursue a career in osteopathic medicine. I have grown to be passionate about the philosophy as well as the usage of OMT. Time and time again, I have been amazed by the power of OMT and its endless applications. I am constantly trying to hone my skills for the benefit of my future patients.

The origin of the word “doctor” is “teacher.” This title not only applies to teaching our patients about their disease and treatment, but to future physicians as well. It is a responsibility that we take on as doctors, and I use every opportunity to fulfill it. I look forward to helping to teach the next generation of D.O.s and hopefully inspire excitement in the unique education they are embarking on.
