About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I have always been passionate about helping others and practicing medicine gives me an opportunity to make a difference in other people’s lives. I enjoy developing long term physician-patient relationships, which attracted me to the field of rheumatology. This discipline of medicine is progressing rapidly with recent advances in treatment choices, giving me more opportunities to explore novel management options for the best patient outcome. I enjoy the life long learning process that the field of medicine offers.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I consider myself a compassionate and caring physician. I follow the standard medicine guidelines to treat my patients but also am very open to individualizing their treatment based on their particular needs and situation. I like to involve my patients in the decision making process which gives the best outcomes for their health and well-being.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I am an avid sports fan and follow the NFL and NBA closely . In my free time, I like to do outdoor activities with my friends and family.
