Clinical Interest for Patients
I have many clinical interests including type 1 and type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, insulin resistance, nutrition, weight management, pre-diabetes, vitamin D deficiency, and thyroid dysfunction.
To the best of my abilities, I leverage my expertise and experience to help people achieve and maintain endocrine health. 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 endocrine care to achieve their goals in endocrine health.

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).
