About

Welcome

I am a physician, a family medicine specialist with a focus on total health, diversity, and Washington, DC.

In 2007, I decided to relocate to our nation’s capital, from Seattle, Washington, to further my interests while continuing to live in the future. I believe in open leadership, sharing, and freedom from conflict of interest.
