About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

Medicine offers such a mix of opportunities. I wanted a career in which I could talk to a large range of people, be challenged to leave my comfort zone and be humbled by what I saw. I also wanted a dynamic job that changed and improved over time, where cutting-edge scientific innovation has a practical application in real-life problem solving. As far as I could see, no other career offered this variety. Caring for patients as people really is at the heart of medicine, and it's a great privilege to help others. I wanted a career where integrity is important.

What I want my patients to know about me:

My feeling about the future is that, if for any reason I did not become a doctor, I would be wasting something—namely, my compassion, commitment, energy, and potential to contribute. I am caring, dedicated and passionate. When a patient does not do well, I take it personally.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy spending time with my wife and family going to sporting events in my free time .
