Infectious Diseases
I have practiced Infectious Diseases exclusively. I have practiced solo, and in a small group practice, as well as in a foundation model. I have worked in short and long term acute care hospitals. I have also worked in skilled nursing facilities. At this time I wish to explore new opportunities. I have been afforded the opportunity to work closely with hospital administrators and colleagues in leadership. I have had the opportunity to hold various positions and chair different committees during my career. These have included chief of staff of a hospital and member of the board of directors of a hospice. I have also chaired the peer review committee at 2 different hospitals. This provided me a chance to turn difficult moments into teaching through constructive criticism.
