About Me

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

I grew up in a physicians household - office attached to our house, dad was an internist - it seemed a natural profession for me and my 2 siblings.

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

I enjoy the consultant role or doctor's doctor as radiology has been called. It is like detective work, using imaging clues in formulating a diagnosis. I also enjoyed studying anatomy in med school.

How do you connect with your patients?

I do a lot of women's imaging where I directly convey results of studies and do resultant biopsies. I strive to be candid, yet compassionate.

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

Swimming, Walking, Music, Piano

What is your advice for your patients?

Stay informed, empower yourself.
