About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I chose this career because of my passion for people. I feel medicine provides me the opportunity to give back to people at a time when they are most vulnerable.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am compassionate, caring, non judgmental and God-fearing person. My faith in God entreats me to treat every one I meet with respect, love and dignity. I set high standards for myself and always strive for nothing but the best for my patients.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

When I am not working, you would probably find me at home with my family and friends. I love to watch soccer and movies with my family. I am also involved in my church and in my college alumni association. Further, I am in school pursing a doctorate degree in nursing practice. I spend some of my time at the library at the weekends studying.
