Yes, my office is accepting new patients. May require referral.
I was born and raised in North Dakota. Medicine has always been fascinating for me. Growing up living in a relatively rural area, it was clear to me that many people left medical conditions untreated due to poor access to care and/or financial limitations. This experience drove me to become a physician so that I could give back to others the medical care that was so lacking when I was growing up. Knowing that patients are trusting me with their health care is an honor. I truly enjoy taking the time to learn about my patients and what fuels their lives.
I am board certified in internal medicine and have chosen to practice in the hospital setting as a hospitalist. Meeting patients at such a vulnerable time in their lives and being able to work alongside so many amazing physicians as a team to treat a wide variety of medical conditions is very rewarding for me. Patient-centered care and cooperative treatment plans are very important to me. My patients are at the center of everything I do and I truly enjoy working together with patients to individualize treatment plans. For the time that I am with you, you can rest assured that I truly want to know you and help guide you on your health care journey.
My family helps me thrive by being my constant reminder of my “why” in life. I enjoy staying physically active and it’s not uncommon to find me in my home gym riding my spin bike or lifting weights. When it’s time to unwind, you can’t beat relaxing with a good book and sipping a cup of coffee!
