About

Bio

I am a dual board certified Pediatrician and Pediatric Infectious Disease Specialist. I have been practicing medicine since 1997 here in Texas and for the past 9 years I have my own practice located in Grapevine, Texas. I see patients from new born up to 18 years of age for primary care like well child visits, immunizations, ear infections etc. as well as patients with more acute conditions, like unexplained fever, various infections. Prior to starting my practice in 2005, I was an assistant professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at University of Texas Southwestern Medical School and Head of Vaccine Center at the Childrens Medical Center of Dallas.

Specialties
Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.
