I chose medicine because I like interacting with people, and I still believe in the concept of “my doctor.” I believe in taking care of the whole person through a team approach between doctor and patient. I believe that a healthy mind helps lead to a healthy body. In my role as CMIO, I strive to leverage technology to improve the delivery of health care and help patients navigate the complex healthcare system.
