Patient Care Philosophy

As a radiologist, I have the opportunity to work with families to help aid in diagnosis and education about the tests that they may be getting. I feel that the better informed and educated a patient and their family are, the better they and their physician will be able to use the results they get. I enjoy working with families that are engaged in their health care, and working with them to foster a full understanding of their experience in the radiology department.

Personal Interests

I enjoy the outdoors, technology, aquariums, and many other activities, as well as spending time with my family.

Clinical Interests

Pediatric musculoskeletal, thoracic, and general radiology; medical education.

Research Interests

Ovarian torsion, foreign body ingestion, use of ultrasound for musculoskeletal diagnosis, medical education.
