About Me

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

I wanted to become someone who inspires my family, friends, and coworkers to adopt healthy lifestyle choices and avoid negative ones. My other goal is to become an active member of society and be able to mentor others.

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

I love having the opportunity to help patients with a variety of conditions. I love working with doctors from other specialties in various different ways, from referrals, consultations, and long discussions to being an advisor.

How do you connect with your patients?

I prefer using a multi-faceted approach including taking time to listen to them, addressing their concerns, and giving simple explanations.

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

I enjoy cooking, knitting and crocheting, traveling with my family, meeting new people, and learning about their culture.

What is your advice for your patients?

Prioritize your health, adopt a healthy lifestyle, and do not skip your regular check­ups.
