I am glad to have the opportunity to present my credentials to you and share other information about myself. It's very important that you feel comfortable with your personal physician, and I hope this page will help you start to get to know me.
Ever since I was a young, I knew that I wanted to be a doctor. This was in part because of the compassionate care I saw my parents give to their patients and the great job satisfaction they received from being physicians. I knew that I wanted to be able to make a real difference in people's lives, and practicing medicine gives me that opportunity and privilege.
Medicine as a career is a very special opportunity to connect and help people in a meaningful way, utilizing medical skills and knowledge, but also listening and responding to what patients needs. Communication with my patients and their families is an important part of my practice. I feel honored that patients have entrusted me with their care and strive to treat them as I would my own family.
Keeping balance in my life is very important to me. I volunteer for various local charity organizations. I'm a runner, and like to work out at the gym. I enjoy traveling and learning about different cultures. I also make it a priority to set aside time to just relax or read a good book.
