Three words that I want patients to use to describe me

  • Passionate
  • People-person
  • Resourceful

What I do that exemplifies these values

  • I am passionate about orthopedic health and successful patient outcomes. Because I love what I do, I have a constant source of enthusiasm that pushes me to provide the very best care possible.
  • I am effortlessly outgoing, conversational, and can naturally find ways for patients to feel at ease and motivated with our plan of care.
  • I am willing to constantly improve myself by learning new things, seeking wisdom from associates, and keeping current best healthcare practices.

My Proudest Professional Moment

The day that a patient’s family member pulled me aside, hugged my neck, and said, “Thank you for genuinely taking the time to explain this surgical process to me, listening to our family’s desires, and loving us through this whole situation! You’re gunna make a great doctor someday”. At that point in my career, I understood the invaluable connection of professional loving kindness.
