What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
I have wanted to be a doctor ever since the sixth grade around the time when my grandmother fell ill and I became very interested in learning about disease and how doctors can cure it.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
I enjoy the variety of patient interaction coupled with procedures. I enjoy taking a look inside the body and working at finding a diagnosis which might potentially be curable.
How do you connect with your patients?
I like to spend time talking with them not just about their condition but whatever might be ailing them in their lives.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
I enjoy playing tennis, reading, music and especially travel.
What is your advice for your patients?
Stay active, eat healthy (low fat, high fiber diet, with plenty of water intake) and pursue activities which make you happy.
