About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

My passion for medicine came from my interests in human anatomy, physiology, and imaging. All of us breathe every day without thinking about it and when it is taken away from you that is a very disruptive and can be a very distressing thing. So being able to see people that have that unfortunate situation, and being able to reduce their shortness of breath and allowing them to live a more normal life is one of the greatest pleasures.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I always tell my patients that we are a team. It is you and me, working together to improve your health. I will be transparent with all available medical therapies and interventions, and will listen about your health issues.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter, playing table tennis and soccer, traveling, and eating new foods at restaurants.
