Board Certifications

Anesthesiology; Pain Medicine

I am a double board-certified anesthesiologist and interventional pain specialist with years of experience in private practice. I care for patients as both an anesthesiologist and an interventional cancer pain specialist. My main treatment goal for my patients is to balance medications with techniques that can relieve pain to improve both quality of life and functionality. These methods include nerve blocks, intrathecal drug delivery systems, radiofrequency techniques, and neurolytic blocks.

My clinical interests lie in learning and practicing the newest innovations so that I can optimize my patients’ pain treatment plans. I also have interests in practice efficiency and management.
