About Me

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

I am very close to my uncle who is also a physician. He always thought I would be well suited to the field. I followed his recommendation and I have never questioned my decision.

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

The specialty 'Infectious Diseases' is a very cerebral and ever changing field. I enjoy the challenging nature of it.

Patients like to be heard. I try to be a good listener to connect with them.

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

I enjoy spending time with my family and watching movies. When time allows, I travel.

If you think there is something wrong with your body, do not hesitate to call your doctor and seek medical attention.
