  • Biography:

    I practice internal medicine in an outpatient setting in Seattle with a focus on geriatrics and the management of patients with chronic pain and opiate addiction. The patient population I treat in Seattle includes many homeless as well as those at the end of life. As I approach the later years of my career, I find my interactions with patients becoming increasingly personal and carrying a deeper impact on my emotions and life outside of work.  Although I speak of these daily experiences with others, including my physician spouse, I find writing a means of clarifying these feelings and a tool to examine them in the context of my life.
