About Me

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

I knew I wanted to go into medicine since I was little. When my sisters used to get wounds, I liked to take care of them.

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

I like having the ability to fix what is wrong. For example, if you have a hernia, we repair it. If there is cancer, we remove it.

How do you connect with your patients?

I listen to them. I try to imagine myself or my family in the same situation

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

Swimming, dancing.

What is your advice for your patients?

To stay positive and have patience.
