What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
I find it truly gratifying to help others which has led that to be one of my life goals. Being a physician allows me to achieve this goal. Growing up, I have always been taught to do good deeds that brought peace, comfort, and well-being to another person. Having such personal values provided me with the ability to be part of this highly rewarding profession.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
One of the many reasons why I chose to be a Nephrologist is because it allows me to be exposed to a wide variety of patients and treat a multitude of conditions. This field allows me to practice in various areas including ICUs, outpatient clinic, and dialysis centers.

Having open communication is essential when trying to connect with my patients. The trust that they have in me is something I truly honor and respect.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
When I'm not at work the first place you will find me is in the kitchen. I enjoy cooking and creating unique recipes. I also love to play and watch basketball. I am training in martial arts, specifically, Muay Thai. I have pleasure in spending time with my family and friends and enjoining in family oriented activities.
What is your advice for your patients?
As medical professionals, we are here to provide you with quality personalized care. However, despite the efforts that are made to help you, your health ultimately beings with you. Therefore, effort is required on both ends to ensure your well-being.
