Philosophy of Care

Sleep disorders are diverse and can affect all aspects of one's health including physical and mental health, relationship, work-life and quality of life. I believe my role as a sleep medicine provider is to provide compassionate care based on scientific evidence. I enjoy working withpatients--together we are a team with the goal of improving sleep, wellness and achieving optimal health.
