About Me

What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?

I think it dawned on me that I wanted to be a doctor when in high school. I was always more interested in biological sciences than any other subject.

What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?

When my sister presented with symptoms of hyperthyroidism and I correctly diagnosed her with Graves' disease. I knew Endocrinology would be my calling. I was in my 3rd year of medical school then.

How do you connect with your patients?

The first thing I ask them is how I can help them to determine their expectations. I also never assume patients won't understand complicated explanations of their problem.

What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?

I'm interested in professional sports, NBA tennis. I love going to plays and musicals. At home, I most watch films- I love British films.

What is your advice for your patients?

Understand what your problem is and how your medicines are addressing the problems.
