About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

Becoming a doctor has been a lifelong passion of mine , because medicine is a complex and ever-evolving field that requires a high level of intellectual rigor and problem-solving skills. I genuinely enjoy learning about the human body and its various functions and marvel at God's divine creation.

What I want my patients to know about me:

Helping others is an integral part of who I am, and becoming a doctor and working as a doctor for the past 18 years has enabled me to do just that on a daily basis. Also, my father served in the US Army as an officer and we lived in many countries. I enjoy interacting with people of all cultures and ethnic backgrounds.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy traveling, cooking, gardening and spending time with family and friends.
