Clinical Interest for Patients
I mainly focus on evaluation and management of dysglycemia, particularly type 1 and type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, other forms of diabetes, insulin resistance, nutrition, pre-diabetes, vitamin D deficiency, and thyroid dysfunction.
I do my best to leverage my expertise and experience to help people achieve and maintain health, particularly as it relates to endocrine/metabolic disorders. In order to accomplish this, I work with each of my patients to create a plan for evaluation (if needed) and treatment. I consider it a privilege to do what I do and to have people entrust their endocrine care to me. My goal is always to have a thoughtful dialogue and personalize each individual’s care to achieve their personal wellness goals.

Research Interests for Patients
I study how diabetes and cardiovascular disease interact to cause problems for people with diabetes, and how best to prevent it and take care of it. I also study high blood sugars due to diabetes or to stress in the hospital and how best to manage it while keeping people safe (such as avoiding blood sugars that are too low).
