About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

Actually, I had to pursue a career in helping other people like most of us do, but my interest as well was in the science of what makes us go as humans.


What I want my patients to know about me:

I am completely dedicated in helping them with their health care needs. Also never be afraid to ask questions concerning their health however trivial.


What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I am a dedicated husband, son, and brother. I work on my health, both spiritually and physically, with exercise, reading, gardening and playing guitar.
