About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

Growing up, my father, an ENT (now retired), was my inspiration and initial exposure to the life of a physician. He spent long days and nights in his private practice and in the operating room. His dedication, commitment, compassion, and care for his patients amazed me. He taught me the importance and rewarding aspects of helping others in need. I became a physician not only to follow in his footsteps, but to truly make a difference in people’s lives.

What I want my patients to know about me:

During residency, I found myself educating patients on diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes regardless of their ailments or disease processes. I have a true passion in nutrition and overall well-being, both mind and body. I knew right away this would be my niche in medicine. By helping people lose weight or get healthy, I believe this can help manage their health risks, make them feel better, and improve their quality of life.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. My husband, my two children, and I love to travel, go skiing/snowboarding, spend time in nature, and having a cozy family night at home. I also enjoy trying different foods, cooking, exercising, visiting my sister and her family in NYC, and cheering my kids during their various sports and activities.
