About Me

I am a General Internal Medicine physician specializing in the care of patients with chronic and complex illness. I have more than 15 years of experience in academic medicine, focused on both curriculum development and hands-on teaching of communication skills, behavioral health and substance use/abuse topics to students, residents, and faculty physicians. My past clinical research and publications have centered around at-risk drinking and drug use in the primary care setting, and ways to reduce related unhealthy behaviors.
