I’ve wanted to be a physician since my earliest recollection, and I attribute that to my dad. He was a doctor, and I admired him for how he loved his work and loved taking care of people. Now as a physician myself, I too love being able to take my education and abilities and exercise them on behalf of other people.
The most exciting part of being a gastroenterologist at Revere Health is the first few seconds of the patient encounter when I ask, “What brings you in to see me today?” Patients tell me their stories, we get to know each other and I figure out how I can best help them. I am empathetic with my patients; I strive to heal not only their illnesses, but also their emotional hurts, concerns and losses.
As a member of the board at Revere Health, I am very proud of our organization. We empower some of the most honest, noble and well-intentioned physicians to exercise their talents and skills on behalf of our patients.
I am married with six children and 16 grandchildren. I am an avid runner and have competed in many marathons. I enjoy backpacking in the Wind Rivers of Wyoming, and I play lead guitar in a band I created with other medical professionals.
A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
