    Special Interests

    My special interests include Hospital Medicine. I am an internal medicine physician who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients. This allows me a special and unique opportunity to care for and build relationships with patients in the hospital, while coordinating care between their out patient primary care providers and inpatient consulting specialists.
