Hometown: Oak Park, IL
Best part of my work: To be able to watch a patient understand something in a different way that will benefit their situation or life.
Why I became a physician: I have always enjoyed working with people and being a catalyst for positive changes in their lives.
What I tell my friends and family: It is what it is...let's look at it together. Breathe.
How I spend my free time: Playing tennis, traveling, playing with my granddaughter, reading for professional improvement and for personal pleasure.
What patients say about me: Patients and other providers say that I "hear" and understand and that I am insightful and supportive while encouraging change.
Favorite health tip: Exercise!
Practice philosophy: Each patient is a whole person-far more than the "dis-ease" they present with-so treat the whole person.
