Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. It’s a pleasure to introduce myself to you. I value the physician-member relationship, and it’s crucial that members feel at ease. I hope this page helps us in building that comfortable relationship.
I was born in Pakistan but grew up in Southern California. I attended La Serna High School in Whittier and then pursued biochemistry at Whittier College. I come from a large family and am the youngest of 5. Besides my natural interest in science, I have a very social and pleasant personality. I enjoy outdoor activities, HIIT (high-intensity interval training) workouts, spike ball, hiking, and making short videos.
About my practice
My journey toward oncology subconsciously started with my first volunteer clinical experience at an infusion center prior to medical school. As I spent time with patients, I heard about their condition, the impact of treatment on their social lives, and their constant fear about prognosis. Patients took an active role in their care and were very compliant with the treatment plan. Furthermore, I witnessed the physicians, nurses, and pharmacists comforting each patient, actively reading up-to-date guidelines, and focusing on patients’ well-being. This experience illustrated the ideal roles of patients and physicians and motivated me to become an oncologist. After finishing residency in internal medicine, I completed my fellowship in hematology/oncology at UC Irvine. Though I have been trained to be a general hematologist/oncologist, during my last year of fellowship I became particularly interested in malignant hematology, particularly lymphomas and leukemia. My goal is to create a respectful, caring, and friendly relationship with all my members and to constantly strive to provide high-quality care.
How I thrive
I am a proponent of physician wellness. My time outside of medicine is spent with family and friends. I enjoy family outings, visiting national parks, travelling, sports games, daily gym, and occasional beach soccer or spike ball.
