What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
Growing up, I had a desire to help and heal others since I had several sick family members. In High School and College, I tutored and volunteered with children, which steered me towards Pediatrics.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
It is very rewarding to treat children since they are very sweet and impressionable, and as a whole, tend to do well in the hospital. Clinically, there are a wide variety of disease, and I am always learning something new.
How do you connect with your patients?
I find common interests or values and talk to patients at their level and fine tune it based on the age and maturity level of the patient. The hospital can be a scary place for children, so I always try to make them smile.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
Cooking, running, concerts, movies, finding the best burgers and pizza in New York.
What is your advice for your patients?
Try to maintain a healthy lifestyle now, since it's easy to see yourself as invincible while you're young, but your lifestyle choices now can affect you years down the road.
