As a concierge physician and general internist, I am grateful for the opportunity to develop longitudinal relationships with my patients. I believe in meeting my patients where they are, as they are, and listening first. Then, we work together with the shared goal of their best possible health. A healthy lifestyle is the first step; keeping people healthy is my favorite thing to do. I am also constantly updating my medical knowledge so that my patients can benefit from the highest-quality medical advances and approaches. I am adept at coordinating care across multiple specialists when needed, and ensuring that my patients feel supported through their medical journeys.
I received my AB in History at Stanford and my MD from Yale. I completed training in internal medicine at the University of Washington, where the medical students nominated me to the medical honors society, Alpha Omega Alpha, in recognition of outstanding teaching. I was selected to be a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar and obtained my M.S. in health studies at the University of Chicago, focusing on patient-physician communication. In 2003, I joined the faculty at Johns Hopkins in General Internal Medicine. I served as a course and clerkship director for medical students, an outpatient preceptor for the Internal Medicine residents, and was Assistant Dean for Student Affairs. My work was recognized by the Alumni Association Excellence in Teaching Award, the Johns Hopkins University Diversity Council Diversity Leadership Award, and the Department of Medicine Ambulatory Teaching Award. I have been selected as a Baltimore Magazine Top Doctor, and as one of the Best Doctors in America by my peers for many years in a row. I was nominated 3 times as Best Physician at Johns Hopkins. I am a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. I continue to teach the medical students and residents.
Outside of work, I love spending time with my teenage twins and our dogs, Pepper and Levi. I am an avid reader, walker, cook, and baker, and enjoy time in the garden and with friends and family.
