I developed a love of medicine as a paramedic and respiratory therapist, and medical school gave me the knowledge and skills to better care for those around me. Being able to help people with different problems continues to be one of the greatest joys of being a family doctor. Besides helping patients with their health problems, I have learned valuable lessons and insights from my patients.
