About Me

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

During my undergraduate when I was volunteering at our community hospital in the Emergency Room, I experienced Physicians at full capacity, reassuring patients for their minor illnesses, and equally treating medical emergencies.  That was a critical moment in my life, when I aspired a future in medicine. 

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

I love that as a Family Physician I can treat and care for all ages and genders.  In my specialty, due to exposure to all ages and genders, I have a chance to encounter many different pathologies, and to perform numerous in-office procedures.  Having said all that, what most inspired me to become a Physician is plainly for one reason only and that is to help other human beings. 

How do you connect with your patients?

I believe the key to a successful treatment for a patient is establishing "trust".  Throughout the years of practice and many patient encounters, I learned that nothing brings me closer to my patients than just "listening".  A true listener to issue and concerns will create the trust needed for providing appropriate care for the patient. 

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

I love working out and CrossFit.  I also love to hike with my Husky.  Playing guitar and painting on canvas are other interests of mine which I perform during my free time. 

What is your advice for your patients?

A key to a happy life is a happy mind and body.  Train your body and mind equally with balanced diet and exercise, and make that an everyday ritual.
