Philosophy
I believe that we all need to be empowered to take an active role in managing our health and medical problems. My goal is to provide comprehensive sleep medicine care to children and adults not only by staying up to date on the latest developments in the field, but also by keeping patients informed and engaged in their diagnostic and treatment process.
