    Why do I do the work that I do?: “I continue to be challenged to find new and innovative ways to incorporate my clinical practice and research in effort to improve the care of patients with combined medical and psychiatric illness.  As well, I am equally humbled by the opportunity to share a deep and rewarding relationship with Veterans that have sacrificed so much for their fellow citizens.”
