Care Philosophy

I like to see patients with varied diseases and presentations which include general Rheumatology diseases as well as other connective tissue diseases like SLE, vasculitis, Sjogren's. I have special interest in the use of musculoskeletal ultrasound for diagnostics as well as joint injections. My goal is to help my patients better understand their disease and to help them deal with their chronic rheumatologic problems.

I also enjoy spending time with my family and listening to music.
