WHAT IS THE MOST INSPIRING PART OF YOUR JOB?
The lower extremity is vital for patients who aim to remain active, healthy, mobile, and independent, and any medical problem in the foot/ankle has the potential to greatly affect a patient’s quality of life. The most inspiring part of my work is helping to improve my patients’ quality of life by utilizing up-to-date medical and surgical solutions.
WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH TO HEALTHCARE?
My philosophy is that providers and patients must work together as a TEAM for a favorable outcome of any medical condition. A provider should attentively listen to patients’ concerns and effectively communicate the advised treatment plan that aligns with the patients’ lifestyles and available resources. I believe that great communication and teamwork are critical in any provider-patient relationship!
WHAT DO YOU ENJOY DOING WHEN YOU’RE NOT WORKING?
Hiking, playing basketball, watching sports (NBA/NFL), spending time with family, traveling, and volunteering.
