Year Joined ICHS:
MEDEX Northwest Physician Assistant Training Program

Why I work at ICHS:
I believe in the mission of ICHS to provide culturally- and linguistically-appropriate health services to improve the health of our patients. My work at ICHS has been both challenging and rewarding.
Patient Care Philosophy:
Communication and education is the foundation to a good patient-provider relationship. I try to listen to patient concerns, figure out their barriers and involve them in their health care decision-making process.
A Physician Assistant-Certified is a provider who has met the standards set by the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants. This provider receives 100 hours of medical education every two years and takes a certification test every six years.
