I am excited to be a clinical staff physician at Joslin. My areas of interests include management of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, transition of care for young adults with diabetes from pediatrics to adult care, management of diabetes after organ transplant and to focus on improving diabetes care around the world by supporting primary care physicians through technology based mentoring.

I come to Joslin with prior experiences of being a clinical faculty at UMass Diabetes Center of Excellence, where I was involved in launching the “Live Life” clinic for young adults with diabetes and transplant diabetes clinic and being a primary care physician at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates at Kenmore for 9 years.

By being a part of the Joslin family, my mission is to help improve diabetes care for patients in an effort to enhance their quality of life while preventing complications related to diabetes.
