About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in medicine:

The human body has always fascinated me. I did develop interest in medicine at early age as I was around people who were in medical field. I loved how they established relationships with their patients. I also saw how physicians help overcame acute illness and cared for chronic illnesses. I started my career in medicine by taking a pre-medicine major in college. I was interested in other careers in college, such as computers as it was new and evolving at that time, but soon realized that a hobby can't be mistaken for career. This further strengthened my continued interest in medicine.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I am an easy-going person. Sometimes a patient gets intimidated coming to doctor's office. I want patients to know that we are a team. I am here to guide you through and take care of health needs. In today's world, as medical knowledge continues to increase, I try to keep up with new information. I do listen to my patients. I believe we, as human beings, also learn from each other.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

Family is very important to me. I love spending time with my wife and children. My children keep me busy as they are young! I like to watch movies, travel and try new cuisines. I go to gym regularly. I also like grilling and spending time with my friends.
