  • Is this information wrong?


  • I have practiced internal medicine since 2003 in a variety of settings, primarily in Maine at Parkview Adventist Medical Center. I have worked off and on as a hospitalist since 2014, and bring skills in palliative and geriatric medicine to my hospitalist work. I have a leadership, ethics and health policy background which also inform my work as a hospitalist. My studies in the last year include critical care co-management with intensivists and procedures under ultrasound. I am currently a faculty hospitalist at the University of Maryland Medical Center, Midtown Campus.
