Patient Care

My approach to patient care centers on my desire to empower my patients by providing them with the tools, skills, and knowledge to understand how to manage their diabetes to the best of their abilities, and avoid complications and hospital admissions. I want to help my patients understand how to collaborate with the members of their healthcare team, and encourage them to be an active participant in their own health care. I believe in the importance of educating and training other staff and healthcare providers at Baylor College of Medicine and the Harris Health System about diabetes and diabetes management.
