About Me

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

In my hometown, there weren't any healthcare professionals nearby. I grew up believing that one day I would fill that void. Although now I live in the US, I still have that same drive to help the underserved in my new home.

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

I like the intricacy of each individual case, and the versatility of my specialty.

How do you connect with your patients?

I try to learn about their social lives like work, family, and I tend to dig deeper and always address what their primary concern is and how we can work together to achieve their goals.

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

Traveling, working out, computer programming, cooking.

What is your advice for your patients?

Eat healthy, exercise and have regular check-ups.
