About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I was interested in medicine since a young age due to having a great family physician. After I shadowed him at his clinic, I knew I wanted to become a physician. I also always loved science and anatomy throughout school, and this lead me into the medical field.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I want my patients be a part of their care. I strive for an environment that makes it easy for patients to ask questions and make decisions with me about their medical plan.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I like to spend time with my family and friends.
