As a neurocritical care physician, I treat patients with life threatening diseases of the brain and spine.  These are often the most terrifying experience for patients and their families and I am there to guide and support, while providing compassionate and high quality critical care to their loved ones. As an educator, my mission is to foster and build communication skills for physicians in training and improve patient-centered shared decision-making.
