Bio
As a physician who works primarily in the hospital, I firmly believe in a team-based approach to the practice of medicine. I also believe it is critical that people understand why they were hospitalized, what we are going to do together to fix or stabilize their problems, and learn how we are going to prevent future hospitalizations for the same conditions. While my interactions with patients are of short duration, they often have an intensity that can be lacking in more chronic care based environments. I believe there is a great opportunity while a person is hospitalized to effect behavioral change. I am strong advocate for a plant based lifestyle, daily exercise, and less medications to deal with chronic conditions.
