Philosophy of Care:

“I understand as a pharmacist that providing care is a team effort that may involve many individuals with the patient at the center. Medications often play a vital role in a patient’s success, and pharmacists are uniquely trained to make an impact and help them succeed. I strive to be the patients’ and providers’ expert around medications and education.  I strive to help patients grow in health literacy and accomplish their health goals. I believe in treating all patients with respect and acknowledge their life experiences play an important role in their overall health and well-being.

I always want to leave an appointment with the following goals accomplished: 1) Understand who the patient is, 2) Answer questions/provide education in a way the patient understands, 3) Empower the patient to be the driving force in their healthcare.  At the end of the day, their victories, are our victories.”
