I firmly believe in the importance of the patient-physician relationship and value open communication, education and working with my patients to understand their medical conditions and provide treatment options to achieve the best health outcomes. I respect the trust that patients place in me and am committed to providing them with the highest standard of care. I feel very blessed and privileged to do my job.
I am skilled in diagnosing and treating patients with diabetes, metabolic bone disorders including osteoporosis, thyroid disease including thyroid cancer, adrenal tumors, pituitary tumors and other endocrine disorders.
I earned my medical degree at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. I completed my residency in Internal Medicine at Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and fellowship in Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland. I am board certified in both Internal Medicine and Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Additionally, I earned my Master's in Public Health (MPH) in Epidemiology and Global Health from the University of Texas School of Public Health in Houston, Texas.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring Milwaukee with my husband. I also love to travel, read and make a mess in the kitchen.
