Personal Statement

As a geriatrician, I believe in taking the most holistic approach to addressing physical, psychological, and social problems surrounding the patient and the patient's family. I consider patients and their families key members of my healthcare team, and I focus on optimizing the quality of life and functional abilities of my patients rather than always seeking a single definite cure.
