About Me

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

Helping and serving humanity, and the urge to learn about fascinating human medicine, always charmed me. My earliest memory is when I was 6 years old and saw a doctor treating my grandmother at the hospital.

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

I am a mother myself so I can relate to a parent's concerns regarding childcare. I chose pediatrics because I love to interact with innocent souls and see them growing while providing the best healthcare they deserve. 

How do you connect with your patients?

I try to make a bond with affection and care. I love to listen to my patients and thoroughly answer all queries/concerns.

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

I like visiting and exploring the countryside, gardening, and reading and watching fiction stories. 

What is your advice for your patients?

Read and eat healthily. Have fun.
