About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

Medicine, particularly, pediatrics is a field/career that is constantly changing, always relevant, deeply rewarding, and morally fulfilling. Every day, I have the opportunity to do some good by my patients, their families and ultimately for myself. I feel that helping children/families in need is not a cliché, but rather a noble calling. I'm always grateful for that chance, every day.


What I want my patients to know about me:

I want my patients and their families to know that I will do my best to serve them well in my capacity as their pediatrician.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I like to be around my friends and loved ones. I enjoy running, dancing, and being outdoors. I am a fan of baking bread and cooking. I love to read lots of books, watch indie movies, make things from scratch, travel, and have good conversations with people.
