Description of Clinical Expertise

My primary clinical interest is in inflammatory arthritis, specifically spondyloarthritis (including axial spondyloarthritis/ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, IBD-associated arthritis, and reactive arthritis). I put a heavy emphasis on patient education and shared decision making within my clinic.
