I love working as a physician at Packard Health. Getting a chance every day to connect with individuals and families, I have the special opportunity to hear an infinite range of life stories and histories. It is in these stories and lives lived that humanity is expressed and that true relationships form. I value every day I get to do this job, and value each patient who comes in the door. My goal for each person I see is to try to help each one live the life they want to live. Sometimes that means being healthy enough to play on the floor with grandchildren or preparing to add a new baby to the family. At other times, it is losing weight to reduce cardiac risk or overcoming depression. I want my patients to be able to imagine a life where their health (both physical and emotional) is not a barrier to achieving their dreams. Working together, I know we can try to make that vision a reality. I look forward to meeting you!
