Clinical Interests

The rising costs of healthcare can cripple the ability to receive care as a patient and the ability to deliver care as a clinician. I aim to identify ways to save healthcare costs by reducing hospital spending without sacrificing quality of care. I am also committed to the education of students and residents. As an academic hospitalist I work to combine these two interests by educating future clinicians about any evidence that supports changing certain medical practices that may have been utilized for decades but are in truth costly and unnecessary.
