Since a young age, I found it fascinating why people think, feel, and behave the way they do. As I learned more about the field of psychology, I also had a strong interest in the sciences, so I decided since junior high school that I would likely go to medical school someday. I explored other options along the way and it was clear that medicine was my calling all along.
The best part about practicing medicine in general, and specifically nephrology, is the opportunity to get to know patients and their families on a personal level, and to help them feel their best in a way that is most in line with their values.
I strongly believe in patient-centered medicine. Each patient has unique needs, goals, and desires and I strive to individualize every encounter to best serve the needs of that person and their loved ones.
