My passion is for perfection. I strongly believe that patients deserve truthful and honest answers to their medical problems, and I strive to achieve that with every patient I see. My goal-oriented approach and strong interest in the sciences attracted me to the medical profession at an early age, and I work hard to apply science in a way that provides compassionate care to my patients and builds my clinical skills.
“Pulmonary and Sleep Medicine fascinates me as I always considered myself ‘a problem-solver’ in demanding situations. Sleep disorders and breathing problems frequently exist together. My mission is to provide the well-rounded care my patients need to get a good night's sleep and be able to breathe well during both the day and night.”
