Getting into medicine was my childhood dream. I grew up with an uncle who was a pediatrician, and from a very young age I got to see the kind of impact he had on our family and friends, and I decided to follow in his footsteps.
What I love most about my patients and my practice is the joy and relief I see on my patients’ faces when they recover from their illness.
In addition, I am grateful for the long-term bonds I establish with patients and their families, especially in nephrology where kidney disease is a life long ordeal.
My philosophy of care is to speak a language patients understand. Often times patients and their families are overwhelmed and confused with the medical jargon, and I try to make things as simple as possible for them to understand their disease process so that they can make an informed decision.
