My clinical interests include endocrine surgery (thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal glands), breast surgery, advanced laparoscopy, colon cancer, and gastrointestinal surgery. I am committed to providing the highest quality of care to each of my patients. I believe in pairing my clinical experience and skills with the patients own beliefs and preferences, in order to give guidance for important decisions and formulate a personalized care plan. My patients can be assured that they will receive excellent care, with emphasis on minimally invasive approaches for the fastest possible return to work and family life. I believe that attention to the best cosmetic result after surgery is also very important for patient satisfaction. I strive to treat each patient with compassion and respect, making sure they understand the rationale and expectations for their surgical experience. The multidisciplinary approach for cancer treatment is an important aspect of my practice.

Downhill skiing, slalom waterskiing, boating, travel, reading, and spending time with my family. I am excited that the new Issaquah hospital campus has given me the opportunity to practice here in my own community where I live.
