Why did you choose this field of medicine?
I have always had an interest in finding solutions to challenging conditions. During my residency, I was intrigued by the complexity of spinal conditions and, therefore, chose my fellowship training to be orthopedic spine.
What’s special about the Apple Valley Medicine Center?
I have enjoyed working with the family medicine providers at the Apple Valley Medical Center, recognizing their dedication to their patients, as well as their high quality of service. Seeing patients in the United Specialty Center gives me the opportunity to work more closely with these providers while seeing patients at their primary care home.
