“Throughout my career, I’ve worn a number of different hats and contributed to the experience, safety and overall care of our patients in numerous ways. Providing a positive patient experience isn’t just about direct patient care. The work that we do on the back-end impacts their impression of our organization and office. Patient care has always been my number one priority and I know how important it is to provide extra assistance and attention to those who don’t always have someone to advocate for them. I strive to balance between fulfilling the mission, vision and values of NEMG while supporting our patients and delivering high quality, collaborative care.”

“Great things are continually happening at Northeast Medical Group, and they are not accomplished by just one person. It takes a team composed of administration, clinicians and staff alike. Their ‘how can we?’ attitudes and use of shared electronic medical records are turning the vision for collaborative, patient-centered care into reality.”

“Northeast Medical Group has provided me with the opportunity to meet and work with an exceptional group of clinicians and staff. Their dedication to patient-centered care and service excellence has been an inspiration. Through our mission of enhancing the health and wellness of those we serve and commitment to community involvement, we are well positioned to deliver value for years to come. I’m fortunate to be surrounded by individuals who embody the vision, mission and values that are Yale New Haven Health System.”
