My goal as a family medicine doctor is to help my patients live their best life possible. To me this means motivating my patients to embrace healthy habits, troubleshooting what is holding them back, and minimizing the negative effects of medical conditions. By personality I am a minimalist. I was trained to scrutinize evidence. As a result, I avoid treatments and interventions where the benefit does not clearly outweigh the harm. I also encourage my patients to stop treatments which may be harmful for them.
It is an honor to be a family medicine doctor and residency faculty member. I love the family aspect of family medicine where I am privileged to care for entire families from small children to grandparents. Clinically, I have special interests in musculoskeletal medicine. I am the Post Falls High School Team Physician. I also am in charge of the residents’ musculoskeletal education. Other clinical special interests include mental health and dermatology.
Personally, I grew up in Coeur d’Alene, ID and have a deep love for all that the Idaho outdoors have to offer.
