What made you want to become a health care provider or what is your earliest memory of wanting to be one?
Since I was very young, I found pleasure and comfort in helping people. I can't think of a better way to help people other than relieving their pain. For reasons that still elude me in my entirety, I never imagined myself as anything other than a physician.
What do you love most about your specialty? / Why did you choose your specialty?
I like being the person who oversees my patient's overall health and taking care of more acute problems.
How do you connect with your patients?
By introducing myself, give them the time and information they need, and by being a good listener.
What are your interests outside of the office (hobbies, activities)?
Watching movies and cooking
What is your advice for your patients?
Depending on the patient's medical condition, know your risk factors and be proactive with your health.
