I chose to become a family medicine physician because I wanted the opportunity to build strong long lasting relationships with by patients.

Doctor with patient:
As a family physician, I get to see a diverse set of issues on a day to day basis, the opportunity to educate my patients on preventative medicine and help them navigate their medical conditions. Whether it be treating their upper respiratory infections or getting them to the right specialist to treat their more serious conditions. I also have the opportunity to learn about my patient’s lives and meet their families which ultimately helps me in creating a care plan that is focused on that specific patient’s lifestyle and needs.

I trained at Swedish Covenant Hospital on the north side of Chicago. After training I wanted to practice in community-based setting and that’s why I chose Palos Health.
