Why did you choose your particular area of specialty?
Pulmonary disease is a complex and fascinating area of medicine that I was drawn to early in my residency. My experiences with mentors in residency and fellowship solidified my interest and enabled me to have a rich experience in treating all kinds of respiratory diseases. Sleep health is a reflection of a patient’s overall health and impacts every aspect of his or her life. I find treating sleep disorders extremely satisfying and believe in involving patients in their own care.
What’s special about the Apple Valley Medical
The ability to work collaboratively with a group of independent, highly motivated and skilled primary care physicians and bring a new specialty that enables expansion of the comprehensive care model to the practice is an exciting opportunity.
