“When I went to medical school it was with the goal of becoming a physician that I would want to see as a patient.  Endocrinology is an area where we guide patients on the right path to improve health but the “ball” is really in the patient’s court.  The role of the physician to educate and support the patient is of key importance.  During my training at Joslin Clinic, I developed an interest in taking care of pregnant patients and delight in the challenge of caring for “2” patients.  I find general endocrinology both exciting and fascinating as well.  Explaining the reason the thyroid works the way it does, hormonal fluctuations and the impact of this on an individual, and the reasons at times the pancreas (the gland that normally makes insulin) does not, is critical to help patients take care of illnesses.  As a child, I developed type 1 diabetes and the patience and respect I have received from caregivers along the way (as well as my obstetrician for my pregnancies)  reinforces my belief that a patient who understands the purpose of a treatment is one who is able to manage his//her disease better.  Returning calls and answering questions thoroughly is a priority.  I try very hard to see patients at their scheduled time so arriving for appointments 5-10 minutes early is greatly appreciated by all!”
