I grew up in Maryland, the eldest of four children, with a much larger extended family. Growing up, I often tried to cram as many different activities into my free time as possible. From swimming and backstage theatre craft, to traveling and studying French, I was always engaged in some new activity. I ultimately chose to pursue my love of biology and medicine by attending the University of Maryland School of Medicine in Baltimore. I then completed my Internal Medicine residency and the Primary Care Track program at Temple University Hospital. Though I’ve only lived in Philadelphia a few short years, I have come to love the city and think of it as my home. I hope to continue living in Philly and serving the community as a primary care physician for many years to come.

In my free time, I love reading, exploring the city, and going home to Maryland to spend time with my family.

COVID-19 Update

If you are sick or were exposed to someone with COVID-19, please contact our office. We are seeing sick patients in the office during special hours in the late afternoon, and we are still doing telehealth visits as well. We can perform both rapid COVID-19 testing and send-out COVID-19 testing at our office depending on what you need, as well as regular flu and strep testing too. Please schedule an appointment so you can discuss with a medical provider what is best for you.

Due to limited resources during the current COVID-19 surge, we will not be performing COVID-19 testing on patients who are asymptomatic and without any known exposure.

If you have been exposed to COVID-19, you should isolate at home until your appointment. The optimal window for testing is 5-7 days after an exposure, but please call us right away so we can make all of the proper arrangements for you.

If you live in the same household with someone who has been diagnosed with COVID-19, you are at a high risk of becoming infected. You should quarantine at home until you can be sure that you are not infected. Please schedule a telehealth visit for specific instructions for your individual situation.
