"The best interest of the patient is the only interest to be considered." This famous saying by Dr. William J. Mayo is my core philosophy as I approach providing the best care to every patient every day. As a dermatology-trained dermatopathologist, I thoroughly enjoy integrating clinicopathologic correlation in an effort to reach the most effective diagnosis, especially in complex medical and hospitalized patients. I strongly believe in a partnership with clinicians to provide the highest level of diagnostic acumen. I am dedicated to inspiring hope and contributing to health and well-being by providing care to every patient through integrated clinical practice, medical education and the advancement of science through research.
