About

Welcome to my blog!

I am a family physician with an interest in patient empowerment and patient-centered health information technology. In 2007, I decided to relocate to Washington, DC, from Seattle, Washington, to further my interests in patient-centered health care, information technology, and promoting diversity in communities and the medical profession.

I believe in open leadership, sharing, and freedom from conflict of interest:
