About Me

Why I chose to pursue a career in healthcare:

I chose to go into medicine because of my deep-seated passion for helping others and a fascination with the complexities of the human body. Alleviating pain from various MSK pathologies and the opportunity to make meaningful impact on people's lives were strong driving factors in my career decision.

What I want my patients to know about me:

I want my patients to know that I am dedicated to providing compassionate and personalized care, always striving to prioritize their well-being and health.

What I do when I'm not seeing patients:

I enjoy traveling and exploring new places with my wife and family. In addition, I enjoy watching sports, especially football, soccer and basketball.
